Item #907 The Franchise Affair. Josephine Tey.

The Franchise Affair

New York: Macmillan, 1949. First Edition. Hardcover. 1st American edition of a very scarce book (both the London and NY editions are almost never seen in jacket).  Horrible, long, old tape stains to endpapers, else a near fine copy in a bright and pretty fresh dustjacket with more horrible tape stains to the edges of the dustjacket flaps, wear to the corners, and rubbing mostly along the folds, else good.  We would sell a finer copy if we could find one, but we think we were lucky to get this one, and the price more than compensates for the faults.  The 1951 film (American British Pathé) was steadfastly faithful to the book. Near fine / good. Item #907

Price: $150.00
