INTRODUCTION

Print editions of this author's works are few and very rare. At the time of writing (September 2017) only two books bearing his name were available at AbeBooks—The Carson Loan Mystery (which he wrote) and a work of non-fiction called Fifty Years of Progress in Australia, 1878-1928 (which he edited).


Only five titles are listed at the WorldCat web site:—

The Carson Loan Mystery
1 edition published in 1926
Held by 8 libraries worldwide
The Dagger and Cord
1 edition published in 1927
Held by 12 libraries worldwide
Fifty Years of Progress in Australia, 1878-1928
7 editions published in 1929
Held by 72 libraries worldwide
The Shadow Crook
1 edition published in 1930
Held by 10 libraries worldwide
The Unlawful Adventure
A typescript novel with manuscript corrections
Dated 1930
On title page: "The Australian Book Publishing Co., Sydney."
Held by 1 library worldwide
Apparently unpublished

Of these, according to Trove (the official web site of the National Library of Australia), only two are available at libraries in Australia: The Dagger and Cord and The Shadow Crook.


Fortunately, we are now in a position to create books for the PGA/RGL de Brune collection from the original newspaper serials preserved in the digital newspaper archives of the National Library of Australia.

Credit for making these works available to our readers goes to Terry Walker, the Australian bibliophile who discovered the "lost" novels of Peter Cheyney published at RGL. Terry's latest discoveries inspired the PGA/RGL de Brune project, for which he also supplied the files used to create the e-books in this collection.
