The Mysterious Bookshop

Vera Caspary - Laura

Boston, Houghton Mifflin, 1943. First edition of this Haycraft-Queen cornerstone title. Bookplate, else close to a fine copy in dust jacket. A rare book and an even rarer jacket. As usual, the spine is sunned, and there is an interior tape repair at the top of the spine that is somewhat visible on the exterior. There is light wear at the spine ends and a tear along the lower portion of the front hinge. $5,000.00
