SIMENON GEORGES
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]
