The Mysterious Bookshop

Foss, John - Flesh and Blood

London, Dennis Dobson, 1951. First edition. A cross between a tribute, an homage, and a parody, a British private eye who behaves like the stereotypical hard-boiled American private eye encounters all the usual stuff--a beautiful, mysterious female spy/victim, a brace of Evil Arabs/Commies/Bureaucrats, and the like.  Jolly Good Fun!  A very nice copy with top corners bumped and a bit of foxing to the foredge. DJ shows wear and chipping to the extremities and sunning to spine.  $35.00.


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
