The Mysterious Bookshop

Erle Stanley Gardner - The Case of the Drowning Duck

New York, William Morrow, 1942.  First edition with same date and no additional printings listed.  Corners slightly bumped & worn, a tiny bookseller's inkstamp to front free endpaper.  A man hires Mason to get the goods on his daughter's fiance, who he doesn't like, but a murder or two complicate the picture.  $25.00.


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
