The Books of Death

I love crime fiction and bibliomysteries are my speciality. Typically the villains and heroes are on the track of deadly books and Miss Death here, with her silken skull mask, is hard to resist. 'The Book of Death' is her first appearance as a Blake villain which makes this item all the more attractive to collectors. It dates from 1929 and the uncredited author was G Evans. The Sexton Blake series was incredibly popular during the twenties and the run contains a good few other titles in the bibliomystery genre. This is my favourite though - great title, great artwork, and a great book.
