A good, clean, tight copy. No dust-wrapper. Spine head bruised. Used; Good Author described on title page as "at one time of the Secret Service in Russia". An eccentric member of the Intelligence Corps during the First World War, he was the son of an Irish baronet and a German woman, and knew many of the Bavarian nobility including Prince Rupprecht. He worked his experience of revolutionary Russia into material for two novels, The Red Shadow and The Dreamer, less notable for style or narrative than for their precise descriptions of the scenes and events he witnessed.
