The Shakespeare Murders

by Neil Gordon

First U. S. edition. Pseudonym of Archibald Gordon Macdonell. Former owner's inked name and stamp on front pastedown sheet and fly leaf, a very old water stain to rear endpapers, else a very good, square, internally clean copy of a very scarce book that lacks the dust jacket. A gentleman adventurer solves a murder by deciphering clues from missing Shakespeare samplers and their catalogue book. This novel was filmed twice: In 1934 as The Third Clew (Fox British) and again in 1938 as The Clayton Treasure Mystery (Fox British).
