First edition. Dr. Carson has been murdered in his library and the only clue is a manuscript that he has been working on. A schoolmaster - amateur detective works on the case. Dust jacket depicts a dead man at his desk with a manuscript in front of him. Lacking dust jacket. Evidence of bookplate removal. Very good copy with some wear along the hinges and edges.
