The Mysterious Bookshop

Cleve Adams - Contraband

New York, Alfred Knopf, 1950.  Stated first edition.  Wear to extremities. Corners bumped. DJ shows wear to extremities with light foxing to rear panel.  An overheated convertible, a not-so-glamorous glamour girl, and fifty thousand in cocaine threaten to overwhelm federal narcotics agent Reed Smith.  $35.00.


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
