The Mysterious Bookshop

Stout, Rex - Alphabet Hicks

New York, Farrar & Rinehart, 1941. First edition with Farrar colophon to copyright page. Near fine with front board very slightly bowed, in very good dust jacket with chipping and small open tears to dust jacket.  A new Stout creation, Hicks is the polar opposite of Nero Wolfe, a disbarred lawyer driving a hack until a mystery woman enters his cab--and his life. $375.00.
