The Mysterious Bookshop

Freeman, R. Austin - The Cat's Eye

New York, Dodd, Mead, 1927. First US edition. Andrew Drayton, noted collector of jewels, is murdered in a room awash with fingerprints. Add to that a secret chamber with sinister contents, and you have a vintage Dr. Thorndyke adventure to savor. Strong vg+ in blue boards. Small light crease to front board with corners slightly bumped and a small apparent ink stain to rear board.  Binding loose in spots, showing webbing at title page.  $75.00.


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
