1 Queen, Ellery The Devil to Pay : The New Mystery By Ellery Queen
New York Frederick A. Stokes 1938 First Edition Cloth 
Very Good in a Good dustjacket. Bound in full tan buckram. Both the spine and the front panel are stamped in red. Octavo. 303pps. There are spots of soiling to the cloth and touches of foxing to the endpapers and to the page-edges. There is also a faint pencil-erasure (of price) at the top of the ffep. Otherwise clean and soundly bound; no names or inscriptions. The rare and striking dustjacket, glossy in a new mylar sleeve and married to this copy, is flawed though presentable: it is backed in brown paper from a previous mylar sleeve (which has, frankly, served to sustain it) and there are abrasions -- superficial -- to the interior of either flap from where they had been affixed to their original book. The bottom 1/8" of the jacket has been clipped off (presumably to allow it to fit into a smaller sleeve); this affects none of the text. There is general overall rubbing wear along the folds and the edges, though there are no large chips or tears. The original price (2.00) is intact. ".An exotic movie actress, the swivel-hipped blonde, Winni Moon, and her scented chimpanzee; a murder which, already precious, became a managing editor's dream; Pink, who came from Flatbush, Brooklyn; Solly Spaeth who was spawned in New York. These are only some slight hints of what you will find in 'The Devil to Pay' and it is fair to say that here again is evidence that for ingenuity, surprise and original setting no mystery writer today can equal Ellery Queen. He never has failed to play fair with his reader. The amazing deductions of his stories are always in accord with the science of the streamlined murder." (from the dustjacket) Purchase with confidence: all books, gradings, and descriptions are rendered the care of a genuine bibliophile. Satisfaction guaranteed or all costs you've incurred will be promptly refunded. Thanks for your interest in Nooks Of Books. To assist with your decision, photos can be emailed upon request.

2 Queen, Ellery The Murderer Is A Fox
London Gollancz 1945 First Edition Cloth 
Very Good+ in a Very Good dustjacket. Light blue cloth. The spine is stamped in gilt. 184pp. The board-edges and the spine are a bit sunned. Also, there is the sporadic, light and small, foxmark. Otherwise clean, tight, square, and bright. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, is considerably faded and sunned -- particularly along the spine. There are a couple of tears at the extremities, though the jacket is intact. The original price of '7/6 net' is on the spine. Purchase with confidence: all books, gradings, and descriptions are rendered the care of a genuine bibliophile. Satisfaction guaranteed or all costs you've incurred will be promptly refunded.
