Josephine Tey – The Franchise Affair – First UK Edition 1948
A first edition, first printing published by Peter Davies in 1948. A very good book without inscriptions. Some sun fading to the head of the spine and a little to the corners. Two small white marks to the rear panel. No inscriptions. In a dust wrapper which has benefitted from some paper restoration to the hinges (especially the front hinge) and to the edges of the rear panel. Not price clipped - the first issue dust wrapper and excessively scarce thus. Tey’s third novel.
