              The Rector and the Rogue: Being the true and incredible account of a dastardly hoax against an upright (if rather stuffy) divine. It turned New York upside down.

              The Rector and the Rogue: Being the true and incredible account of a dastardly hoax against an upright (if rather stuffy) divine. It turned New York upside down. (Hardback)

              By Swanberg, W. A.; Epilogue by Collins, Paul

              In 1880 the Reverend Dr. Morgan Dix was rector of wealthy Trinity Parish in New York City. A High Churchman, Dix was an able and admirable man, with little humor. His troubles began on the morning of February 18 when a representative of the Acme Safe Company arrived, summoned, he... said, by Dr. Dix. He was quickly followed by a teacher in a girls' school and a man leasing two horses for sale, both with letters from Dix--which of course were forgeries. In the following weeks, wigmakers arrived, as did dancing teachers, dealers in used clothing, eminent clergymen and their wives dressed for lunch outings--all of them fraudulently invited. Meanwhile, the perpetrator began communicating with Dix, signing himself Gentleman Joe. The New York Police and post-office officials were called in, and it was soon discovered that an Irish saloonkeeper was suffering the same harassment as Dix. Day by day the persecution became more ingenious and more harrowing, until they finally caught Gentleman Joe, who turned out to be a remarkable little man with a startling motive. The story of it all is told by W.A. Swanberg, a Pulitzer Prize- and National Book Award-winning (and yet near-forgotten) biographer, and raconteur of the highest order.

              The Riddle of the Traveling Skull

              The Riddle of the Traveling Skull (Hardback)

              By Collins, Paul; Edited by Collins, Curator for Ancient Near East Paul (Ashmolean Museum of Art and Archaeology University of Oxford)

              The Collins Library is proud to present the triumphant return of Harry Stephen Keeler -- to some, an overlooked genius; to others, the Ed Wood of detective fiction. The Riddle of the Traveling Skull is perhaps his best-loved work. The adventure begins when a poem and a mysterious... handbag lead a man to the grave of Legga, the Human Spider -- and things just get stranger from there.
