MURDER MYSTERIES, 1st editions

Gracie Allen Murder Case Dine 1.jpg (200194 bytes)

THE GRACIE ALLEN MURDER CASE, by S.S. Van Dine, published by Scribners, 1938.  First edition, with original dust jacket.  Book has the Scribners' colophon on copyright page, as well as "A" beneath disclaimer; and, "1938" on title page in Roman numerals.  Book is in fine condition: it is almost spotless except for a short and light pen inscription on front paste-down and a tiny light discoloration on lower part of book spine.  Binding is solid and tight; pages are bright and clean.  Dust jacket has several short tears professionally mended; one tiny paper loss on spine matching tiny discoloration on book spine; and is price-clipped.  This spot has also been professionally mended.  This book is in remarkable condition (I wish most of my F. Scott Fitzgerald first editions were in this astoundingly pleasing state.)  Price: $375.00

"... But never again as during that all too short period when he and I were one person, when the fulfilled future and the wistful past were mingled in a single gorgeous moment -- when life was literally a dream...."  F. Scott Fitzgerald, from 'Early Success,' The Crack Up, October 1937
