|Thorndike introduced his famous character to the world in 1915 with Doctor Syn, but it was twenty years before he produced Doctor Syn on the High Seas which expanded on the character's early career as the pirate Clegg. Further novels appeared almost annually until 1939, and then the final instalment appeared in 1944.
The third, Doctor Syn Returns, was published in 1936; it is this book which describes the second alias, the Scarecrow, head of the smugglers of Romney Marsh.
This jacket is from the collected edition, issued after World War II.
