Título: FELL MURDER.
Editorial: THE CRIME CLUB.
Año de publicación: 1947
Condición del libro: Very Good
Edición: 2ND PRINTING.
Descripción Collins/The Crime Club, 1944. Hardcover. Condición: Fair. 1st Edition. A reasonable but rather tired hardback first edition without a dust jacket. The orange boards are a little marked, and the spine is faded. The previous (private) owner has written the date of publication in biro near the tail of the spine. A printed name and address label has been stuck in the top left-hand corner of the front paste-down. The binding is secure and the contents are clean. Overall, a rather tired first edition without a jacket, ideal as a reading copy but probably not suitable as a present. [By modern standards the typeface is rather small].

Garthmere Hall itself was old before Flodden Field, and here Robert Garth, still hale and hearty at eighty-two and very much of an old Tartar, ruled his household with a rod of iron. The peaceful dales and fells of the north country provide the setting for this grim story of murder, a setting in fact which is one of the attractive features of an unusual and distinctive tale of evil passions and murderous hate in a small farming community.' (Quote from inside front of dustwrapper blurb). ***A rare crime first printing of the true first edition, especially hard to find in the original dustwrapper which on its back panel has the contemporaneous publisher's advert for other authors that Collins have published including, amongst others, Agatha Christie, Rex Stout, Nicholas Blake and Ngaio Marsh.
