O'Scollain, Shuggie - The Printer's Proof

London, Cadds, 2006. First edition (the book states "First Paperback Edition" but there is no record of a hardcover edition ever having been produced). Many overtones of Sherlock Holmes, beginning with Wiggins having tea at 11 1/2 Baker Street, in a case involving England's printer's union, notably the NUPBW, which represented the men who did the following: guillotining (cutting the page edges) and binding of books. Fine trade paperback edition.

Specializing in Mystery Fiction and all its subgenres, including Detective, Crime, Hardboiled, Thrillers, Espionage, and Suspense.

Located at 58 Warren St in New York City, we are open Monday-Saturday from 11am-7pm.
