Beschreibung:

FIRST EDITION IN BOOK-FORM. 8vo; pp. 305 + 6 ads. Bound in the publisher's original red cloth with gilt titles to spine and upper. A used copy showing some moderate handling and wear; cloth sunned, edges dusty and toned, gilt to spine dulled, owner name to flyleaf. Remains presentable. Includes the title story, which appeared in 'The Strand' magazine in September 1917 with the subtitle 'Some War Experiences of Sherlock Holmes'; the covers bearing the tag-line 'Sherlock Holmes Outwits a German Spy'. Unlike most Holmes adventures the narration is in the third person rather than recounted by Dr. John Watson and the episode focusses on espionage and intrigue rather than mystery and detection. Due to its portrayal of British and German spies and its patriotic themes, the story is widely believed to have been conceived as a morale booster for the troops. Green & Gibson [A40a].
