Description

First Edition, Publishers' Original Binding, With Dustwrapper

First Edition.

This is a three volume set of assorted works by Michael Innes. These works were published by Gollancz and all display yellow unclipped dust wrappers. 

This collection includes two thriller novels and a volume containing detective short stories. The titles are 'A Connoisseur's Case' (1962), 'A Change of Heir' (1965), and 'The Open House' (1972).

Two of these works follow the adventures of John Appleby, a fictional detective who starts as a Detective Inspector for Scotland Yard and ends his career as a Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police. 

Michael Innes (1906-1994), otherwise known as John Innes Mackintosh Stewart, was a thriller and crime fiction writer. Under his pseudonym, Stewart wrote nearly fifty detective novels as well as short story collections. He also wrote a range of critical studies on literary figures such as James Joyce and Joseph Conrad. 

Collated, complete.
