Scouring Books: The Riddle of the Sands

The Riddle of the Sands
by Erskine Childers

Originally published in 1903

I had to be intrigued when I stumbled across this one, because it is one of the very earliest modern novels (described on the cover as "the first and best of spy stories"), but I'd never heard of it before, so I had to add it to my collection at least as a curiosity.
