What Our Customers Say...

Description

First Edition, Publishers' Original Binding, Scarce

The first edition, first impression, in the second issue binding with black text to the back strip and front board.

Illustrated with a floorplan frontispiece.

This thrilling novel from a central figure of the Golden Age of Detective Fiction, this novel follows a dubious spiritual cult in fashionable 1930s London, and its charismatic leader.

Contemporary inscription to front pastedown.

Condition

In the publisher's original cloth binding. Bumping to back strip head and tail, with discolouration to back strip. Small closed tear to back strip head. Rear hinge lightly strained, but firmly held. Inscription to front pastedown. Internally, firmly bound. Pages age toned due to paper type, but clean.

Very Good
