Gentle spine lean; backstrip faintly dulled; extremities worn; spine ends just barely faded. Rear hinge only just starting; occasional marginal soiling. Dust jacket folds professionally reinforced, with no attempt at restoration, evidence of tape mends since removed; edges worn with chips at the folds, the 'S' in 'Stokes' just barely affected; spine panel faintly dulled with light crease down the center; occasional minor scuff. Still, a very good copy of a difficult title to find in jacket. The first Ellery Queen mystery. A Haycraft-Queen Cornerstone. With an unjacketed first edition copy. From the KoKo Collection.
