Book Details + Condition: Scarce first (UK) edition of THE DISENTANGLERS by Andrew Lang. Illustrated by H.J. Ford. Decorated boards with writing (etc) on spine. In good condition: boards and binding are solid and tight; slight lean; some shelf wear to boards, including smudging and rubbed corners and edges; mark on spine; first page darkened; interior is clean and free of writing or marking. One of Lang's least known works, THE DISENTANGLERS consists of a
dozen detective stories involving marriage entanglements, with a humorous perspective — perhaps intended to be a slight parody of Sherlock Holmes.
