First edition, first printing. Publisher’s original orange cloth with black titles to the spine, in dustwrapper. An excellent near fine copy, the binding square and firm, the cloth bright and without fading. The contents are clean throughout and without previous owner’s inscriptions or stamps. Complete with the lightly rubbed and nicked original dustwrapper which has a few closed tears and some small pieces of tape to the underside. Very scarce in dustwrapper.
The last of the Amos Petrie novels, a classic of the golden age and recently re-issued in Collins’ Detective Club Crime Classics series. J[ohn] V[ictor] Turner is most commonly known as “David Hume” author of the hard boiled Mick Cardby series. (Hubin).
