London: For The Crime Club by Collins, 1938. [Detective fiction] FIRST EDITION, octavo (20 x 13cm), pp.252. Lacks half-title and adverts to the rear. Bound in a vintage mid-blue cloth, likely a library binding, although there are no institutional stamps. Edges trimmed, some marks within, a few leaves cropped, ink number to pastedown, flyleaf removed. An inexpensive copy of the scarce first edition, albeit with some flaws.
