Publication: The Bobbs-Merrill Company, 1929, Indianapolis
First edition. Author's first mystery novel. With a wonderful presentation inscription that includes a couple of amateurish but charming drawings on the front fly leaf. Residue on front pastedown sheet where front flap fold was at one time glued to the pastedown sheet, else a fine, bright copy in dust jacket with restoration to the flap folds and spine ends. At 37 Hardy Street we find a man slumped at a breakfast table set for four people. Was it murder or suicide and what happened to the three occupants who were also present at the table?
