The Scorpion
Graphic Publishers, Ottawa, 1931. This is a near fine copy of a very scarce title, in a pristine jacket. Published in Ottawa in 1931, it's a Yellow Peril novel set in London's Limehouse district, traditional scene of opium dens and nefarious Oriental criminal masterminds. The delicate jacket is flawless, without crease or tear. The book is tight, square, internally clean, save for a previous owner's name on the front end paper, and a slight dustiness to the top of the text block. As it says on the back flap, "Every Graphic book is 100 p.c. Canadian". Clearly, P.C. means percent and not politically correct. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]
Bookseller: Sellers & Newel Second-Hand Books [Toronto, ON, Canada]
