(pictorial brown cloth; no dust jacket) [moderate general wear, spine slightly turned, a bit of soiling to page edges, slight bumping to several corners]. (B&W frontispiece) "A New Fantômas Detective Novel," originally published in France in 1911 as "Le Policier Apache." This was the sixth of 32 novels featuring this character that were turned out by this writing duo in just three years (1911-1913); their partnership was terminated by Souvestre's death in 1914, but Allain returned to the character in the mid-1920s and eventually added another eleven titles to the canon.
