Wallace (Edgar) The Devil Man.


London, Collins Crime Club, 1931

First edition. 8vo. 2pp. advertisements. Original dark orange cloth blocked in black. Dust-jacket spine priced 3/6, with further 1/- sticker.

‘The name “Charles Pearce”…to whisper it after dark is to start a horde of wild imagings…all that makes the flesh creep and the hair stand on end…a repulsive creature to look upon; a colossal braggart; a gifted musician; a murderer – a dwarf in stature and a Samson in strength; the perfect burglar; and a man with an irresistible attraction for women…’ (publisher’s blurb).

A very good first edition in early issue jacket with the sinister artwork by V. Asta bright and clean to upper panel.
