eBook: Dr. Syn · A Smuggler Tale of the Romney Marsh

Russell Thorndike created Doctor Syn for this, his first novel, published in 1915. A native of Romney Marsh in southeast England, he chose to base the book around real-life smuggling in the area in the late 18th century. Dr. Christopher Syn, an elderly parson, has his life turned upside down when His Majesty’s government comes to Dymchurch-under-the-Wall to investigate that smuggling.

Unlike some of the other recent editions of this book, this version is complete. It has been thoroughly proofread and newly-set in Caslon, the leading book typeface of the 18th century. I hope you enjoy the book and the reading experience. Download a copy at the bottom of the page. Feel free to comment at the bottom of this page. Contact me if you find errors, and I’ll make sure to issue an updated version.
