First edition, first printing. Publisher's original blue cloth with gilt titles to the spine, in the Youngman Carter illustrated dustwrapper. A lovely fine copy, the binding square and right, the contents clean throughout and without previous owner's inscriptions or stamps. Complete with the lightly rubbed dustwrapper that has a couple of small nicks at the head of the spine. Correctly priced 7/6 net to the spine. A very attractive example, scarce thus.
A crime fiction caper written between the two Cambridge University friends and colleagues, which Priestley regarded as "a frolic for sheer entertainment". Priestley's first novel "Adam in Moonshine" was dedicated to Gerald Bullet.
