First edition, first printing of the first book in the Mr and Mrs North detective series, highly uncommon in this condition with the dust jacket, designed by noted New Yorker cartoonist Helen Hokinson. The Norths Meet Murder was later re-issued as Mr and Mrs North Meet Murder (Avon, 1952).

Octavo. Original orange cloth, titles to spine and front board in blue. With the dust jacket. Spine very slightly faded and with a gentle crease, corners rubbed and bumped. An excellent copy, notably bright and fresh, in the dust jacket with a few chips to spine- and joint-ends, a couple of small tears to joint between front panel and flap.

Bibliography: Hubin p. 252; Reilly, ed., Twentieth Century Crime and Mystery Writers, pp. 955-60; Queen's Quorum p. 113
