SHERLOCK HOLMES VERSUS ARSENE LUPIN: THE CASE OF THE GOLDEN BLONDE. New York: Atomic Books, Inc., . Small octavo, pictorial wrappers. First U.S. paperback edition? First published in 1909, this book was variously titled (ARSENE LUPIN VERSUS HOLMLOCK SHEARS, THE BLONDE LADY, etc.) because Sherlock Holmes' name could not be used due to copyright restrictions. This is the first printing under this title and is perhaps the first U.S. paperback edition. Light reading crease to front cover at spine fold, a few light cover creases, a near fine copy. (#127917).
