The Mysterious Bookshop

Crispin, Edmund - Buried For Pleasure

Philadelphia, Lippincott, 1949. First US edition. Gervase Fen is an Oxford Don with a taste for imbroglios. And there's no greater imbroglio than running for office, as Fen does here, seeking a seat in Parliament while trying to crack a poisoning case.  Corners bumped with a small stain to front board. DJ shows wear and chipping  with creasing. Staining to rear panel. $45.00.
