The Stark - Munro letters

£10.00

Product description

An epistolary novel in the form of twelve long letters written by J. Stark Munro between March 1881 and November 1884 and sent to his friend Herbert Swanborough of Lowell, Massachusetts. Stark Munro is a recent graduate from medical school, and the letters detail his attempts to create a medical practice in partnership with the brilliant but unorthodox James Cullingworth. The novel is in fact a thinly disguised account of Doyle's experiences with George Turnavine Budd with whom he was in partnership in Plymouth, before finally setting up his own practice in Southsea, Portsmouth in 1882.
1902 reprint by Longmans' Silver Library collection. Condition: Fine to fair. Burgundy cloth covers w/ gilt lettering on the spine. Frontis by Alice B. Stephens. Rubbed corners and wear on covers. Tanned pages w/ some foxing. Very slightly loose front hinge.
