Gaudy Night

SAYERS, Dorothy L.

SAYERS, Dorothy L. Gaudy Night

Gollancz, 1935.

First edition. Original black cloth lettered in gilt, in yellow dustwrapper printed in black and magenta. A fine copy in a fine dustwrapper, which is bright and crisp with a few spots of foxing to the preliminary page edges and just a hint of fading to the spine of the dustwrapper, but startlingly bright on the panels. An exceptional copy, the finest example we have encountered.

Gollancz dustwrappers of this period tend to age very badly, being made of thin paper and fugitive pigments. Survivals such as this are exceptionally rare.
The third of the Wimsey novels to feature Harriet Vane
