The Mysterious Bookshop

Conyn, Cornelius & Marten, Jon C.

London, George Harrap, 1961.  First edition.  Who killed the ballerina's dresser?  Ilonka had no money to speak of, no men friends, and the only thing missing was a suspender belt.  The investigation by Balinese police chief Alih Akim uncovers multiple permutations of the past histories of the ballet company.  Spine slightly cocked, very light staining to boards. Foxing to edges.  Binding could be tighter. Dust jacket shows some dampstaining with chipping to extremities, particularly spine ends. $45.00.
