SAMUEL LYLE: CRIMINOLOGIST. Arthur Crabb, pseudonym.


New York: The Century Co., 1920. Octavo, pp. [1-8] [1-2] 3-347 [348-350: blank], inserted frontispiece and three illustrations by S. C. Coll, original red cloth, front and spine stamped in black. First edition. Collection of eleven crime stories. Though the illustrations are attributed to S. C. Coll, this is likely a printing error as they appear to be by Joseph Clement Coll. (note: the Coll signature on the plate at page 212 matches a signature I observed in a piece from THE MAGIC PEN OF JOSEPH CLEMENT COLL). Hubin, p. 195. Queen, The Detective Short Story, p. 28. Hinges cracked, small booksellers label to lower front free end paper, lower corners bumped, insect tracking to front and rear cover, light wear to spine ends, an about good copy. (22371).
