A collection of 12 short stories based on the fictional character Father Brown. A Roman Catholic priest and amateur detective, Father Brown solves mysteries and crimes using his intuition and keen understanding of human nature. Chesterton loosely based the character on John O’Connor, a parish priest in Bradford, who was involved in Chesterton's conversion to Catholicism in 1922.
First published in 1911, this edition is derived from the original book with 8 black & white illustrations by Sydney Seymour Lucas. As always, this edition is complete and unabridged.
