Book Condition: Fine

First Printing. This copy is signed by Ellery Queen (Frederic Dannay) on the front free endpaper. From the auctioned collection of M.B. Goldstone--and signed by him in pencil to the front pastedown--also some notations throughout the book by Goldstone--checking off the titles he personally owned. A fine copy in a very good dustjacket. Very minor age toning only--a clean and sturdy copy. The dustjacket is chipped and missing some pieces along the top edge and spine head and heel--otherwise the front cover is complete with title clearly visible--rare to find a copy with a dustjacket at all. Goldstone and his brother Adrian (Steinbeck's Bibliographer) were well known collectors of early Crime and Western fiction. This book contains 14 well known crime stories considered among the best pre-1948--including titles from Hammett, and Christie. Very scarce signed.
