The Mysterious Bookshop

Creasey, John - The Insulators

New York, Walker, 1973.  First American edition.  If there were a device that created silence, a jet taking off, a factory, the roar of a waterfall, all absolutely silent.  A blessing?  What if the cost were the permanent loss of freedom?  Dr. Palfrey and the Z-5 unit must balance the two opposing forces. Apparent faint tape removal marks to boards.  Staining to front endpaper, DJ shows blue stripes common to books with Brodart covers. $7.50.


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
