1 Block, Lawrence The Burglar Who Studied Spinoza
New York Random House Inc 1980 0-394-51065-8 / 9780394510651 First Edition, First Printing Hard Cover 
[1980]. Near Fine in a Near Fine dustjacket. Brown boards with a black, silver-stamped backstrip. Octavo. 213pps. There is a very slight lean to the spine, otherwise Fine: clean, tight, and bright. The textblock is immaculate; absolutely no reading wear and no previous ownership markings. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, is mildly rubbed and has a small crease in the front flap; the original price (8.95) is intact. A very nice copy of this early Bernie Rhodenbarr mystery.

"...In the realm of larceny, there's no one quite like Bernie Rhodenbarr. A gentleman, a bookseller, and a thief, Bernie steals with style. But now Lawrence Block's beloved criminal has discovered one of the abiding truths about the burglary business: Two's company. Three is definitely a crowd. The second burglars were Bernie and his dog grooming partner, Carolyn. They came to rob the Colcannons' West Side brownstone while the couple was out of town having their own personal burglar alarm -- a Bouvier named Astrid -- bred. But when Bernie and Carolyn break in they discover that they've already been beaten to the punch. Fortunately for Bernie, the first burglars left behind some decent goods, including a pair of emerald earrings, a fine Piaget watch, and a valuable coin that could just be too hot to handle. But of course he takes it anyway. The Colcannon home, though, still has a busy night ahead, and the next morning one person is dead. And when the next murder strikes uncomfortably close to home, it's time for Bernie to go to work. Because somewhere between a bungled burglary, a nasty case of double homicide, and a rare nickel is a case that makes little sense..."
