The only early jacketed copy of Mrs. Belloc Lowndes' famous crime novel that we have ever encountered. Haycraft-Queen cornerstone.
Near Fine in an about Good example of the rare dust jacket. Jacket has some loss at the heel and a couple of corners, some separation at the front flap fold, a somewhat toned spine panel, and shadows from a couple of old tape reinforcements (now removed).
