The Case of the Gilded Fly.
London: Victor Gollancz Ltd, 1944 - Octavo. Original green cloth, gilt lettered spine (rubbed to white). With the dust jacket. Spine of jacket toned and a little rubbed, internally a hint of foxing otherwise an excellent copy. First edition, first impression of the author's debut novel, written when he was still an undergraduate, and introducing eccentric amateur sleuth Gervase Fen. "Crispin's work is marked by a highly individual sense of light comedy, and by a great flair for verbal deception rather in the Christie manner" (Julian Symonds, Bloody Murder, From the Detective Story to the Crime Novel: A History, 1973, p. 152). [Attributes: First Edition]
