Comments & Further Information

Re-issue by the British Library in their Classic Crime Series, this is a B format (130 x 198 mm) paperback. This title was originally published in 1864. Read once very carefully. In nice condition. SYNOPSIS: “Miss Gladden, the first female detective, is a determined and resourceful figure, with ingenious skills of logic and deduction. Pursuing mysterious cases, she works undercover and only introduces herself as a detective when the need arises. This makes perfect sense considering that when the Female Detective was first published in 1864 there were no official female detectives in Britain – in fact there were no women police officers either (and would not be for another 50 years).” IN STOCK FOR IMMEDIATE DESPATCH
