Carr, John Dickson - The Witch of the Low-Tide

New York, Harper & Brothers, 1961.  Stated first edition.  Best known for his locked-room mysteries, author Carr also wrote several works of historical fiction.  In this 'Edwardian melodrama,'  it is June of 1907 and pioneering neurosurgeon David Garth and Inspector Twigg of the Yard cross paths trying to solve a puzzling murder.  A beautiful copy, fine in a fine dust jacket. $45.00.
