Crispin, Edmund - The Long Divorce

New York, Dodd Mead, 1951.  Author Crispin, pen name of Bruce Montgomery, brings us his usual wit and prose as Gervase Fen ponders the meaning of numerous poison-pen letters reaching inhabitants of a small English village. Nothing to do with divorce, the title is taken from a quote in Henry VIII. Slight wear to extremities.  Inkstamp to front endpaper, card holder to rear endpaper. $15.00.


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
