1 Peters, Ellis Saint Peter's Fair: The Fourth Chronicle of Brother Cadfael
London, United Kingdom Macmillan 1981 0333310500 / 9780333310502 First Edition Hard Cover 
[1981]. Very Good in a Fine dustjacket. Green boards. The spine is stamped in gilt. Octavo. 220pps. There is mild bumping to the upper tips, a bit of dustspotting with a couple of faint soilmarks to the page-edges, and a small piece of tape (as if a bookplate has been removed) on the ffep). Otherwise clean and soundly bound. As is ever the case with this edition, the pages are tanned due to their acidity. The dustjacket, glossy in a new mylar sleeve, is very lightly rubbed at the extremities; the original price (5.50 net) is intact. A quite presentable, collector's-quality copy of this early Brother Cadfael mystery.

"...The great annual Fair of Saint Peter at Shrewsbury, a high point in the city's calendar, attracts merchants from far and wide to do business. But when an unseemly quarrel breaks out between the local burghers and the monks from the Benedictine monastery as to who shall benefit from the levies the fair provides, a riot ensues. Afterwards a merchant is found dead, and Brother Cadfael is summoned from his peaceful herb garden to test his detective skills once more..."

2 Peters, Ellis The House of Green Turf
New York Morrow 1969 First Edition 
Near Fine in a Near Fine dustjacket. Blue boards. The spine is stamped in yellow. Octavo. 220pps. There is a slight, nearly imperceptible lean to the spine, otherwise Fine: clean, bright, and soundly bound. The textblock is immaculate; no apparent reading wear and no previous ownership markings. The boldy colorful dustjacket, glossy in a new mylar sleeve, has a small touch of wear at the top of the rear flap; the original price (5.50) is intact. An excellent, collector's-quality copy.

"...Maggie Tressider, lovely and famous singer, was on her way to a concert when her car skidded on a curve and crashed. She woke up in the hospital, not too seriously hurt but disoriented -- and haunted. Haunted by the terrible conviction that somewhere, somehow, in a forgotten corner of her life, she had been the cause of a man's death.
Her doctor, understandably, suggested that perhaps a psychiatrist was in order. But Maggie insisted on a private detective. She wanted facts -- she was sure of her guilt.
This is how Francis Killian came into the picture, and in looking for Maggie's victim (real or imaginary, he wasn't first sure), he found a great deal more than he had bargained for, including a desperate love for his client.
The trail to Maggie's past leads to the mountains of the Vorarlberg in Czechoslovakia where, in the midst of seemingly tranquil, sylvan beauty, old ghosts rise in a material and most threatening form..."

3 Pargeter, Edith (Ellis Peters) Warfare Accomplished
London, United Kingdom Heinemann 1947 First Edition 
[1947]. In Very Good condition. Bound in full green cloth. The spine is stamped in gilt. Octavo. 362pps. No dustjacket. There is light wear to the cloth, browning to the endpapers, and crinkling to the lower corners of several pages. Otherwise clean, bright, square, and soundly bound. No previous ownership markings. The third volume of The Eighth Champion of Christendom.
"...In the first two volumes we follwed the fortunes of Miss Pargeter's soldier from Dunkirk to his return from the East in 1943; in this story he fights his way from D-Day to victory. Thus a remarkable trilogy is brought to a remarkable conclusion with what is perhaps the most exciting of the three stories. It is amazing that this picture of tank warfare, of artillery concentration, of Maquis ambushes, should have been written with such detailed realism, and with such understanding of a soldier's mentality, by a writer who was herself serving in the W.R.N.S...."
