"For 81 at 70 - Don't bother to work it out, it's mere something personal"
BUSH, Christopher. The Case of the Prodigal Daughter. London, Macdonald & Co, 1968.
8vo. Original grey cloth, title gilt to spine, pictorial dustwrapper styled as a random note; pp. 167; dustwrapper a little worn, spine toned, nevertheless a very good copy of an uncommon book, signed by the author on the title-page.
First Edition, signed by the author. The last book written by prolific detective fiction author Christopher Bush, about blackmail, thuggery and murder in the Soho underworld. Bush was born in 1885, survived two world wars, and spent all his spare time in between pumping out dastardly crime fiction with an increasingly wry sense of humour.
