A Question of Proof

BLAKE, Nicholas

BLAKE, Nicholas A Question of Proof

Collins, 1935.

First edition. Original orange cloth lettered in black in pictorial dustwrapper. A fine copy with the faint remains of a mark at the base of the cover in a near fine dustwrapper which shows a little wear to the spine ends and a short closed tear to the upper cover, but is notably bright and crisp.

The author's first work as Nicholas Blake (as pseudonym for the poet Cecil Day-Lewis, used for writing crime fiction) and the first appearance of Nigel Strangeways, the author's series character.
Seldom encountered in such a well preserved dustwrapper.
