GARDNER, Erle Stanley Murder Up My Sleeve. London, Cassell. 1938

8vo. Original green cloth bound with some spine lettering faded; colour illustrated dust jacket; pp. ; light spotting to edges; otherwise internally fine.
Rare First UK Edition. Bored by the routine nature of the legal practice, Erle Stanley Gardner would go on to become the best-selling author of the 20th century at the time of his death. Primarily known for his series featuring detective Perry Mason, it is rumoured that on Einstein's death a book featuring Gardner's iconic character was recovered by his bedside. Murder Up My Sleeve is one of two books centred around the cunning Terry Clane, 'a new sleuth with new methods'.
