The Mysterious Bookshop

Rex Stout - Prisoner's Base

New York, Viking, 1952. First edition.  Nero Wolfe has had some unusual clients in his career, but this one takes the cake--none other than Archie Goodwin himself!  Lime green boards, top corner slightly bumped with light wear to extremities. DJ shows chipping to extremities and spine ends with small tear to top.  $65.00.


We are devoted to all things mysterious, from hard-boiled hardcovers to pulpy paperbacks, suspected signings and whispers around town.
