Murder at the New York World's Fair.New York, Random House, 1938 Stock Code: 92695
NotesFirst edition, first printing. The heroine of this mystery is a convalescing widow in her late sixties whose adventure takes off as she stows away from her unsympathetic family on a train bound for the New York World's Fair. Random House commissioned Phoebe Atwood Taylor (1909-1976) to write Murder at the New York World's Fair to accompany the much publicized event of the same name which took place in 1939. It is the only novel the author wrote under the pseudonym Freeman Dana (she also wrote as Alice Tilton). Scarce in dust jacket.
Octavo. Original blue and orange cloth, titles to spine and decoration to front board in blue. With the dust jacket.
Faint spotting to spine, some foxing to endpapers and margins of last leaves. An excellent copy in a rubbed jacket with a few tiny chips and short closed tears.
