NotesFirst edition, first impression. The jacket front flap breathlessly reports a contemporary review: "Nowadays all is changed, Cabinet Ministers, Judges, University Professors and Bishops all openly admit that they read detective stories. What has caused this revolution in taste? I have no doubt of the answer and can give it by saying one name - Austin Freeman."
Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine in black. With the dust jacket.
Small ownership signature to front free endpaper. Spine rolled, internally fine; an excellent copy in the professionally restored jacket with sunned spine.
