Orczy, Baroness: The Case of Miss Elliott (1905) v1, 1 Nov 2019

The Old Man in the Corner short stories first appeared in "Royal Magazine" in 1901, and continued regularly for a number of years. The first collection, "The Case of Miss Elliott", appeared in 1905, and contained only the most recent batch of stories, ignoring the first three years.

"The Old Man in the Corner", 1908, contained the earliest stories (1901-1904), and the final collection, "Unravelled Knots", came much later.

The reason for this out-of-sequence book publication is that from 1904, in the "Royal Magazine," the lady reporter's name was changed to Miss Polly Burton, and the stories were from then on in the third person.

The earliest stories were then re-written for book publication, to match the format of later ones.

I have now posted all three volumes of Miss Orczy's "Old Man in the Corner" stories. (The author's name is pronounced "Ortsy".)


1: The Case of Miss Elliott
2: The Hocussing of Cigarette
3: The Tragedy in Dartmoor Terrace
4: Who Stole the Black Diamonds?
5: The Murder of Miss Pebmarsh
6: The Lisson Grove Mystery
7: The Tremarn Case
8: The Fate of the Artemis
9: The Disappearance of Count Collini
10: The Ayrsham Mystery
11: The Affair at the Novelty Theatre
12: The Tragedy of Barnsdale Manor

Hi Matthias

Just enter Orczy in the search box, hit Search, and there it is. It wasn't created by me, but by Harry T in 2010. (There are not many Orczy books in the Kindle library.) If that doesn't work I will happily email you a copy of my own version.

Just looking, I see that I wrote above, "I have posted..." when actually Harry T posted the first one. But I did make my own "house style" version for myself, which is in my Calibre Library, and I assumed I'd posted that one.

It would be interesting to see the original magazine stories!

I imagine they might have some interesting illustrations. I have a book that collects 5 of H.G. Wells books which contains the original illustrations. Not sure if he published first in a magazine format or went directly to book format but it's still something to see.
