Frome, David - Mr Pinkerton Finds a Body
A US Grosset reprint.
Wrapper : The evocative period wrapper on this copy is bright, clean and complete. It is unclipped. The front panel is bright and unfaded, showing a touch of gentle shelf wear at the top edge. The spine is sound. It is gently dulled and shows a tiny, tiny slither of loss at the head. The white back panel is clean and bright, showing insignificant bruising at the top edge. Looks sharp in protective plastic.
Book : The book is square and very tight. The boards are clean, the corners are sharp. The spine ends are gently bruised. The pages are clean. No foxing. The closed page edges are sound - the top edge is slightly dusty, the leading edge is toned. No dog-eared pages. The binding is solid - no cracked hinges. There is a neat, contemporary gift inscription, dated 1934, on the ffep. A nice copy in a protected wrapper.
