First edition, first printing. Publisher's original variant red cloth with black titles to the upper board and spine, in the C. Morse illustrated dustwrapper. An excellent better than very good copy, the binding square and firm with a nick at the head of the spine and some shelf wear to the bottom edge, the cloth remains fresh and without fading. The contents are fine, clean and bright throughout and without previous owner's inscriptions or stamps.Complete with the bright original dustwrapper which has several short closed tears and a little rubbing and creasing but remains without loss. Correctly priced 7/6 net to the spine. An attractive example, scarce in the dustwrapper.
The second of four Hubin listed crime novels by this author.
