Octavo, pp. [1-8] 9 [10-12] 13-297 [298: printer's imprint] [299-304: ads], original decorated black cloth, front panel stamped in white and ruled in blind, spine panel stamped in white and gold, rear panel ruled in blind, bottom edge untrimmed. First edition. "Outside the fantasy genre Onions is best-known for his grim, unrelenting character novels, especially IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE EVIDENCE (1912), a murder mystery, and THE STORY OF RAGGED ROBYN (1945), which creates a nightmare landscape of the seventeenth-century Lincolnshire marshes and often challenges the reader to distinguish between reality and fantasy." - Clute and Grant (eds), The Encyclopedia of Fantasy (1997), p. 709. "Not detection, but a minor classic of crime. The background, planning, and execution are told in the first person, which unfolds the sufficient motive." - Barzun and Taylor, A Catalogue of Crime 1667. Hubin (1994), p. 615. Several white stains to rear cover, an otherwise quite attractive copy. (#118819).
