The Camera Fiend
A thriller from E W Hornung
First edition, second impression. Hardback, 18 × 11cm, 319pp.
A thriller from the creator of Raffles, whose narrator is an asthmatic cricket enthusiast with an ironmaster father, much as Hornung was himself, and concerns the attempts of a scientist to photograph the soul as it left the body.
A good reading copy. The boards are rubbed and the inner binding is a little weak in places. The pages tanned but the book remains perfectly readable.
