New York: Scribners, 1900. 1903 [the 1st edition of this translation was from Osgood 1875; the French first edition was in 1867]. Very Good to Near Fine cloth, w/o dustwrapper. Four inserted illustration plates by William Glackens (1870-1938) who following his years as illustrator evolved into highly regarded painter and was one of the founders of the "Ashcan School" of American realism intrigued by images of poverty and low neighborhoods. Classic detection; murder mystery featuring Detective Lecoq. A film adaptation was released in 1932, starring Lew Cody, an American matinee idol with French ancestry. It had also twice been filmed during the silent era (1915, 1917), which evidently do not survive. Gaboriau is still well regarded as a pioneering founder of detective fiction; as there was not yet a detective category of publishing he was called the leading "sensation" novelist, after the sensationalist content, and was often called "the Edgar Allan Poe of France." He preceded Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes, and Doyle clearly took some pointers from Gaboriau. His international fame held for many years, but then the overwhelming popularity of Holmes caused a decline of interest in Lecoq. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 5557
