The Memoirs of Solar Pons (Signed First Edition)

Sauk City: Mycroft & Moran, 1951. Frank Utpatel. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine / Near Fine. Item #012215

12mo., 245pp. Beautiful First Edition, the second of Derleth's collection of stories paying homage to Sherlock Holmes after "In Re: Sherlock Holmes". One of only 2038 copies printed. Square tight and clean throughout with perhaps a hint of wear to the top edge but trivial. Gorgeous Frank Utpatel unclipped jacket, ($3.00), has some mild rubbing to crown and front fold but is fresh and bright with no chipping, creases or tears nor any of the commonly found toning. Inscribed by the author on the front end-paper, "Canonically, August Derleth". A quite sharp collectable copy. (Jaffery p. 48).

Price: $450.00
