Creasey, John - The Toff Proceeds

New York, Walker, 1968. First US edition. Originally published in 1941, this seventh adventure in the Toff series finds the Honourable Richard Rollison enlisted to play cricket for his local team.  Of course there are complications: a missing member of the team is found stabbed, one woman disappears, another is murdered.  All sorts of trouble for the Toff!  Small scraped areas to boards indicating tape removal.  Inkstamp and small stain to rear endpaper.  Blue stripe to DJ, typical for jackets encased in a Brodart cover. $10.00.


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
