Author / Artist:

Macdonald, John Ross


New York: Alfred A. Knopf. 1949


First edition, first printing. Signed by the author. Original brown cloth, in dustwrapper. A very good copy, the cloth binding clean and square, the contents complete with a few light marks to the far edge of endpapers and half title. Complete with the superb near fine dustwrapper which is entirely without tears, just a little fading of the red to the spine. Not price-clipped ($2.50 to upper front flap). An excellent example, very uncommon in signed state.




Signed by the author in blue ink on the front free endpaper. The first Lew Archer mystery and Haycraft Queen Cornerstone.
