THE CHIEF LEGATEE. Anna Katharine Green.


Illustrated in Water-Colors by Frank T. Merrill. New York and London: The Authors and Newspapers Association, 1906. 2 pp undated ads. Original blue-grey cloth lettered in white.

First Edition of this mystery. A couple checks into a hotel for their wedding night, and within minutes the bride has disappeared. The title page includes the printed notice "The Sale of this book in New York and Philadelphia is confined to the stores of John Wanamaker." This copy is in very good condition (very minor wear at a couple of corners; as always, some of the white pigment used for the cover lettering has flaked away). In our experience this is one of the scarcer Green titles from this period. Item #6637

Price: $115.00
