The Mysterious Card/ The Mysterious Card Unveiled

Boston: Small, Maynard, 1895, 1896 [actually 1912]. First Edition. Two short stories; in Bleiler. The paper seal is still bound in around the second story, but has been broken. Very good in dust jacket. This copy has a cancel title page with only the magazine copyright dates; there is another state (possibly an issue?) with a different copyright notice. The first title is probably the most famous riddle story, and the second title is the author’s attempt to provide an answer, widely regarded as an unsuccessful effort.
