First edition, first printing. Publisher's original purple cloth with gilt titles to the spine, in the MIBART illustrated dustwrapper. A very good copy, the binding square and firm, with bumping, rubbing and light fading to the cloth around the extremities. The contents, with toning to all edges of the text block, are otherwise clean throughout and free from inscriptions or stamps. Complete with the rubbed, creased and toned dustwrapper, that is lightly faded to the bottom of the spine and other wise free from loss or tears. Not price-clipped (£3.00 net to the front flap).
From the library of the Edgar and CWA Diamond Dagger Award winning author Martin Edwards, with his penciled signature to the endpaper. Gladys Mitchell's 49th book featuring the psychiatrist and amateur detective Dame Beatrice Lestrange Bradley.
