Sax Rohmer, SHADOW OF FU MANCHU, 1st ed.

Garden City, New York: Doubleday & Company, 1948. Octavo, cloth in dust jacket. First edition (stated). The last of Rohmer’s Fu Manchu novels published by Doubleday’s Crime Club, also the last originally published in hard covers. It’s actually a novelization of a Rohmer-written play featuring his immortal Devil Doctor. Condition: Very Good in Good Plus jacket. The book itself is fundamentally sound, although it has the page-yellowing common to surviving copies of this title’s first edition. There is shelf wear to the top and bottom edges, and an ownership signature on front free end paper. The jacket has shallow chips on top and bottom edges, and the spine panel is slightly faded. But this is still a perfectly collectable copy.

PRICE INCLUDES SHIPPING AND HANDLING TO DOMESTIC U. S. BUYERS. NO INTERNATIONAL SALES.
