How it works

Register

The first edition in dustwrapper of his highly collected mystery fiction author's third and probably scarcest tile. A bright very good minus copy in the original blue cloth with black lettering. The edges are moderately spotted and this does extend 1-2mm. on to some pages, but there is minimal internal foxing elsewhere. There is a neat dated signature on the front free endpaper. The unclipped pictorial dustwrapper by Bip Pares, with a pink spine, is somewhat used with some edge chipping and tears but is essentially complete (see images). Very scarce in any state and particularly in the dustwrapper.
