Product description

James Edward Preston Muddock also known as "Joyce Emmerson Preston Muddock" and "Dick Donovan" (28 May 1843 to 23 January 1934), was a prolific British journalist and author of mystery and horror fiction. For a time his detective stories were as popular as those of Arthur Conan Doyle. Between 1889 and 1922 he published nearly 300 detective and mystery stories. This book is a collection of 13 detective stories which had previously been published in magazines. There is a 32 page section at the back of the book, a list of books for sale by the publishers.

This 1888 first edition is in poor condition. There is no dust jacket. The hard cover is worn and bent front and back. The spine is faded and the corners bumped. The binding is intact but loose. The end papers are torn where the covers bend. The frontispiece is browned but the rest of the pages are, in the main, clean.

This book will be posted by courier in the UK at an increased postage cost. If you live abroad and are interested in this book, please contact the Truro Oxfam Bookshop for a postage quote.
