GARDNER, Erle Stanley.
The Case of the Perjured Parrot.
First edition, first printing. “This early Perry Mason is uncommonly full of detection, and the games played in it with parrots do not detract from plausibility. Denouement not huddled – all in all, a model in his special genre” (Barzun & Taylor, A Catalogue of Crime).
Octavo. Original black cloth, spine and front cover lettered in green and black (on a green ground), pale green top edge, others untrimmed. With the dust jacket. Very slight nicks at extremities of spine. An excellent copy.
