COLONEL THORNDYKE'S SECRET
1898 - London: Chatto & Windus, 1898. 32 pp ads dated Jan 1898. Original salmon cloth decorated in black. First Edition, which consisted of 2000 copies (only some of which have the ads in the first state, January 1898, as in this copy). Like Henty's previous books published as three-deckers by Chatto & Windus, this was a novel meant for adults; though C&W was delighted to see that this book was just as long as his three-deckers, it was too late to be published as such (as the three decker format had finally died in 1894).~This is a fine copy, with virtually none of the cover soil that typically afflicts such light-colored cloth. Like Henty's other books for adults, this one is quite scarce, especially in this condition. Newbolt 79.1. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
      [Bookseller: Sumner & Stillman [ABAA]]
