A follow-on from his earlier series, "Shafts from an Eastern Quiver", sees his two imperturbable British heroes and their guide, the wily (and in my view a lot smarter) Hassan working there way across north Africa from one pitfall to the next. Nine stories in all. I couldn't find any book edition, much less a cover, so I made my own cover.

1: The Veiled Idol of Kor
2: The Wizard of Swazi Swamp
3: The Hidden Egyptian Shield
4: The Dervish of the Nile Pyramid
5: The Lost Fetish of Walai
6: The Great Dial of the Gold-Finders
7: The Brigand of Kairouin the Holy
8: The City of the Scarlet Scarab├Žus
9: The Wolves of the Atlas

Thanks for this!

Internet Archive has some of these in Strand Magazines with some splendid illustrations, but I don't know who the artist was.
