The Mysterious Bookshop

Creasey, John - Hammer the Toff

London, John Long/Crime Book Society, n.d., circa 1947.  When Bruce Drayton invented a substance to rival nylon in its utility, he never expected to vanish into thin air!  There's more than meets the eye here, when his lady friend goes to Richard Rollison, aka the Toff and demands that Bruce be found! Wear to extremities, foxing to edges. DJ shows open tears and chipping along with blue stripe from Brodart cover. $12.50.


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

Located at 58 Warren St in New York City, we are open Monday-Saturday from 11am-7pm. 212.587.1011
