First U. S. edition. Author's second novel. Fine bright copy in dust jacket with red lettering on the spine lightly sunned, with minor wear to the spine ends and corners, and with a small closed tear to the top edge of the front panel at the hinge. Eliizabethan scholars, a production of the great Shakespeare play and a missing rare book are important elements of the Appleby detective story. Really a nice copy of a scarce book.
