Death's Visiting Card

London: Andrew Melrose, (1936). Hardcover. Good / Good. Original mustard colored cloth, lettered in black to the front panel and spine. 8vo - 288 pp, and 28 page publisher's catalog. No internal date. The rear panel of the jacket advertises titles for "Spring 1936." Hubin lists the publishing date of 1936. The book shows moderate over-all wear. The corners are bumped. The book is rubbed and soiled and the spine shows some staining. Internally the book is clean with the exception of page 107/108. This page has a rectangular loss mid-page with some loss and is heavily re-inforced with clear tape which has now yellowed. Everything is readable save for the missing portion. The dust jacket is priced on the spine with a 2/6 sticker which sits atop, I believe, a 3/6 price. Now extremely scarce. I suspect the book to be a first edition with a twice reduced price, second or third state jacket.

Price: $225.00
