by Carter, John and Graham Pollard
First edition. A classic piece of literary detective work in which the authors expose Thomas J.

This copy has been signed by both authors on the half-title. Very rare to find a copy signed by both authors. Bookplate of Rachel McMasters Miller Hunt (stamped HBL Withdrawn). Jacket is worn with piece of front cover and top of spine missing.
