London: Collins, The Crime Club, 1968. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine / Near Fine Minus. Item #007812
8vo., 256pp. Beautiful First UK Edition and true First Edition. Square tight and clean throughout with perhaps a hint of a bump at the heel but quite minor. No other discernible wear. Very attractive unclipped wrapper, (18s. net), has a touch of edgewear and quite mild toning to flap and rear panel edges. An area of crinkling to the front panel. Still fresh and bright with no creasing, tears or chipping. A gorgeous collectible copy of an uncommon title in high-grade condition. (Hubin p.293).
