The Mysterious Bookshop

Burke, Thomas - Twinkletoes

London, Cassell & Co., 1926.  Best known for his collection Limehouse Nights, about London's Chinatown, author Burke drew attention to the Chinese community in the UK, not all of it welcome. Subtitled 'A Tale of Chinatown' and very much of its time.  Corners slightly bumped, occasional foxing.  DJ shows open tear to rear panel and top spine. Small spotted area to front board. Price sticker (for one shilling!) to front panel. $20.00.


We are devoted to all things mysterious, from hard-boiled hardcovers to pulpy paperbacks, suspected signings and whispers around town.

Located at 58 Warren St in New York City, we are open Monday-Saturday from 11am-7pm. 212.587.1011
