THE CURSE OF DOONE. Sydney Horler.


New York: The Mystery League, Inc., Publishers, 1930. Octavo, pp. [1-2] [1-4] 5-6 [7-8] 9-315 [316-318: blank] [note: first and last leaves are blanks], original decorated black cloth, front and spine panels stamped in green. First edition. A German spy impersonates a vampire. "THE CURSE OF DOONE is typical Horler, which is to say it is inspired nonsense... This and Horler's other novels are high camp by today's standards. THE CURSE OF DOONE is just one of several that can be considered, for their hilarious prose, pomposity, and absurd plots, as classics of their type." - Pronzini and Muller, 1001 Midnights, pp. 380-81. Hubin (1994), p. 413. Some spotting to top edge, spine a little leaned, a very good copy in a very good price clipped dust jacket with closed tears to upper front panel and upper rear panel and some shelf wear and rubbing. (15519). Item #15519
