First edition in book form, first printing. Publisher's original red cloth with gilt titles to the spine, in the Roland Davies illustrated dustwrapper. An excellent very near fine copy, the binding square and firm, the spine with a little ghosting from the dustwrapper. The contents are clean throughout and without previous owner's inscriptions or stamps. Complete with the beautiful original dustwrapper which has a few light wrinkles and some fading of the red to the spine. Correctly priced 7/6 net. An exceptional example.
The second of Sir Malcolm Campbell's motoring mystery novels and the basis for the 1939 MGM film "Burn 'Em Up O'Connor" starring Dennis O'Keefe and Cecilia Parker. Neither the book or the film did much to excite contemporary critics, unlike the stunning Roland Davies dustwrapper artwork which has become a classic of the genre. (Hubin).
