Bramah, Ernest KAI LUNG'S GOLDEN HOURS
New York: (1923). First U.S. edition, first printing. Hardcover. Light wear to the edges, mild rubbing, as usual, to the front and rear paste-on cover art, and to the spine label, thus a near fine copy; lacking dust jacket.
Second Kai Lung book by the eccentric and reclusive Bramah is once again a volume of rich and mannered picaresque fantasies told in an elegantly decorated mock-Chinese style. Bramah is also the creator of mystery icon Max Carrados, the blind detective!.
