New York: International Polygonics, Ltd., 1985.
First thus; first IPL printing. Paperback. 7" X 4 1/8". 190pp. Bound in pictorial paper wraps, with cover illustration by Roger Roth. Moderate wear to binding, with rather heavy edgewear, creasing to sine, light dust soiling, and rather pronounced lean to spine. Previous owner's name to front free endpaper. Spine starting to become visible at page 40. Binding remains sound. Pages are clean and unmarked. An admittedly worn but charming 1985 vintage mass market copy of the first Gideon Fell mystery, featuring an introduction by Douglas G. Green and cover art by Roger Roth. Good. Item #4206
