The Mask of Dimitrios.London, Hodder and Stoughton Limited, 1939 Stock Code: 126598
NotesFirst edition, first impression, of this noted rarity, and particularly so in the jacket. Most of the first edition stock was destroyed during the Blitz when the Germans bombed the Hodder and Stoughton warehouse. This is Ambler's most famous work, and a Haycraft-Queen Cornerstone in detective fiction.
Octavo. Original red cloth, title to spine in grey. With the dust jacket.
Spine slightly rolled, foot of spine slightly faded, a little foxing to edges. A very good, tight copy in the bright jacket, spine just faintly toned and ends a little nibbled and creased, extremities rubbed, closed tears to rear panel and head of front panel with tape repair to verso, tips slightly chipped, front panel still presenting nicely.
