Abraham (C.S.) Five Plus Four
London, Drane’s, .
First edition. 8vo. Original green boards. Dust-jacket, priced 6/-.
An uncommon first edition of this collection published by an uncommon imprint. Many of the tales revolve around a consulting detective agency in Calcutta, as in the author’s coeval work Benjamin & Co., and despite a tendency towards some rather “old school” jingoism and misogyny do include some rather wonderfully evocative sketches of colonial life in India.
