The Adventure of the Dying Detective

New York: Advertising Department/ Collier’s Weekly, 1913. First Edition; publisher’s vellum spine with paper title label, and boards. Very minor soiling and wear; nearly a fine copy of a rare book, rarer still in its original gift box; issued as a Christmas advertising promotion, it was included with 3 unrelated books in a cardboard slipcase with a printed paper label. The slipcase has some cracking and wear; the other books are in very good condition; one lacks the paper title label and another’s is damaged. The story appeared in the Collier’s of November 22, 1913, and wasn’t collected until some 4 years later in His Last Bow (1917).
