The Mysterious Bookshop

John August - Troubled Star

Boston, Little Brown, 1939.  Stated first edition.  Black boards with red lettering & devices, near fine.  DJ shows wear to corners with chipping and tiny open tears to spine & spine ends. Trumped-up political scandals and murder are highlights of this lively tale.  $100.00.


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
