Philadelphia, Lippincott, 1949. First US edition. Gervase Fen is an Oxford Don with a taste for imbroglios. And there's no greater imbroglio than running for office, as Fen does here, seeking a seat in Parliament while trying to crack a poisoning case. Corners bumped with a small stain to front board. DJ shows wear and chipping with creasing. Staining to rear panel. $45.00.
