New York and London: G. P. Putnam's Sons, 1901. 3 pp undated ads. Original maroon cloth with facsimile typed letter affixed to the front cover.
First Edition of this mystery. The narrator is walking along a Manhattan street when a young girl rushes out of a door to say that her sick grandpa needs to talk to the first person going by on the street; the grandpa expires just after handing over an envelope... This is a bright, near-fine copy (volume slightly askew, a few trivial cover marks) -- of one of the less-common Anna Katharine Green mysteries. Item #6635
