Six Against the Yard.
In which [the six authors] Commit the Crime of Murder which Ex-Superintendent Cornish, C.I.D., is called upon to solve.London, Selwyn & Bount,  Stock Code: 89246
NotesFirst edition, first impression. An interesting variation on the conventional detective fiction anthology, in which the six authors contribute stories featuring supposedly foolproof murders, each followed by an exposition of the flaws in the criminal scheme by the recently-retired detective George W. Cornish of Scotland Yard.
Octavo. Original pink cloth, titles to spine in black. Without the dust jacket.
Extremities of spine and boards rubbed, bottom corner of front board lightly bumped, faint tanning to free endpapers, prelims a little foxed. A very good copy.
