Maigret Abroad
Routledge, London, 1940. First UK Edition. Publisher's original buff cloth, titles to spine in black. Lovely clean copy. Publisher's original buff cloth, titles to spine in gilt. A lovely near fine copy (offsetting to the end-papers) with gold lettering on the spine (indicating that this is the likely first issue of the first edition). In the VERY RARE D/W priced 8/- net to the inside flap as called for. The D/W is bright but creased with a short closed tear to the foot of the front panel and head of front flap, and tape repair to verso. First edition in English, first impression, very scarce in D/W. The volume comprises two stories, La Danseuse du Gai-Moulin and Un Crime en Hollande, both of which were first published in French in 1931. In my experience the scarcest among the first six Routledge volumes. Rare. Scans invited. A much nicer copy than normally seen. Laid in are: (a) author's postcard sized card , signed inscribed and dated 1977 on his Lausanne, Switzerland letterhead; and (b) a 1965 Press photograph of the author on a Winter Sports Holiday at Crans Sur Sierre dated 4-1-65". Rare with these attributes [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]
Bookseller: James M Pickard, ABA, ILAB, PBFA. [LEICESTER, United Kingdom]
