Notes

First edition, first printing. With a typed note signed by the author to fellow mystery write Veronica Parker Johns laid-in, in which he reflects on her short story, The Homecoming, that it was "a damned good story, which assuredly as an editor I would buy, but a little less strikingly individual. And your greatest virtue is being not quite like anybody else." The Homecoming won the annual short story contest run by Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine in June 1952. Although unmarked as such, this copy is from the library of the renowned bibliophile and dermatologist, Lawrence M. Solomon (1931-2014).
