The Mysterious Bookshop

Simenon, Georges - The Patience of Maigret

NY, Harcourt, 1940. First edition. Advance proof, bound in the published book's dust jacket. Strengthened with tape along edges and front hinge. Still, a very good copy of a rare state of this important Haycraft-Queen cornerstone.
