The Mysterious Bookshop

Dean, Amber - The Dower Chest

New York, Putnam, 1970.  First edition. Upon returning from a buying trip, Henry Millard returns to his antique shop to find his wife distraught because she has inadvertently bought a large chest that turned out to be stolen. Henry isn't deterred, though--he steals it right back from Dirty Vic, only to find grim contents within---the body of Dirty Vic!  Fine in fine dust jacket, the latter showing the lightest touch of wear to corners and spine ends. A beauty! $45.00.
