Thus speaks Philo Gubb in this classic volume of criminally silly comic exploits- with irresistible period illustrations by Rea Irvin. Philo Gubb: Correspondence-School Detective was picked by none other than Ellery Queen (Queen's Quorum #61) as one of the most important detective books ever written. Ellis Parker Butler (1869- 1937) was a native of Muscatine, Iowa. Dropping out of high school to help support the family he worked in a number of jobs including ones in a spice mill, an oatmeal mill, a china store, and a wholesale grocery. Moving to New York City in 1896, he began writing for trade magazines such as the Tailor's Review, the Wall Paper News, and The Decorative Furnisher.

Its phenomenal success allowed Butler to give up editing trade papers and turn to full-time authorship.
