8vo., original red publisher's boards, lettering in gilt to spine; in the original unclipped pictorial dust jacket; pp. 156, [iv]; a little pushed to foot and a touch toned to the edges of the text block; else an exceptionally bright copy in the like wrapper; with ever-so-slight toning to edges and evidence of a previous price sticker being removed from front inner flap.
First UK edition by Gollancz, originally published in the USA under the title 'A Study in Terror'. A delightful pastiche of a Sherlock Holmes story, expounding how the master detective may have solved the Jack the Ripper case. Doctor Watson, of course, narrates.
