Item #17729 German Spies In England, An Exposure. William LE QUEUX.

German Spies In England, An Exposure. London: Stanley Paul and Co., (1915).

First English Edition, Advance Review Copy in original illustrated wrappers. Extremely rare title to be found in what is believed to be advance state wrappers, as a second printing in hardcover has been noted, but no other wrappers editions have been found by this cataloguer. Le Queux, best known for his espionage mysteries, and sometimes considered the father of such fiction, here writes of actual spies working in Britain in advance of the First World War. Front wrapper advertises: "A startling exposure / The German spy system / the methods of spies / how they have been officially protected / astonishing facts / never before made public / outspoken revelations / of vital interest to everyone." Very Good plus, some modest shelf wear, minor loss at spine ends, small area at spine with what looks like 'white-out'.

Price: $500.00
