1 Lanza (The Marquise Clara) and James Clarence Harvey. Scarabaeus. The Story of an African Beetle.
London, etc.: Cassell, 1892. First British edition. Terracotta cloth, front cover designed in green, silver, gold and black, lettered in black; spine designed and lettered in gilt. Floral end papers. 16 pages of ads at rear dated 12.92. Remains of W.H. Smith label on inner front cover, shelf wear to edges and some scuffing and soiling of cloth, some wear to spine ends, about very good. A weird mystery concerning a cursed gem. Locke: SPECTRUM OF FANTASY I, pg. 133. As with the copy he describes, this one has the page following the final page of text [pg. 285/6] excised, possibly done by the publisher to remove inappropriate ads. George also theorizes that the New York edition (also Cassell, 1892) precedes this one, and that the British edition is made up of American sheets, which I am inclined to agree with. A slightly scruffy copy, but a handsome book.
