An exemplary example of the late 1920s/early 1930s publishing, when more reading was encouraged and books were made to last and be shared. Bound in beautiful green with gold stamped titles, in a “washable binding” called Fabrikoid made by Dupont.

Authors include the greats of the time: A.C. Doyle, H.C. Bailey, E.P. Butler, M.D. Post, A. Christie, F. L. Packard, V. Starrett, just to name a few. This ten-volume set of Antiquarian books is a nice addition to a detective fiction fan’s collection.

Books are in good condition with gentle wear. No obvious stains on the outside of any volume. Some gold leafing still visible on top edges. Volume 1 has a half-page hinge split between the Title page and pre-title (picture is included of this) and Volume 7 has a full seam split between the Contents page adjacent to the copyright page. Other than these 2 issues the rest of the bindings are solid. Original marketing sticker still gently glued to the first page of volume one. (See picture included of this!).
