The Mysterious Bookshop

Freeman, Martin Joseph - The Scarf On the Scarecrow

New York, Dutton, 1938.  First edition.  On the surface, a placid country estate outside Chicago. But murder lurks in the peaceful late summer garden, and Jerry Todd and Molly Clerkenwell take it upon themselves to unravel the mystery. Green boards with burgundy titling. Spine slightly cocked. DJ shows open tear along front fold with wear and chipping to extremities.  $65.00.
