London, Hutchinson, 1933. First edition, first impression. Hardback. A very good copy. Graeme's proposition for the ending of Dickens' Edwin Drood. The author's own plate has been attached to the front pastedown, but that of course is no guarantee that it was his own copy. There are a couple of news paper review clippings laid in, including one from Francis Iles, which has a handwritten date on it. It would make sense for the author to collect clippings, but so do plenty of others. The amateur sleuth may wish to compare the limited sample of handwriting on the clipping to Graeme's own hand, or the amateur sleuth may wish not to. The amateur sleuth has enough agency to make that decision themselves. The jacket is a little tanned with a black mark to the foot of the upper side, some wear to the spine tips, but largely in nice shape. Boards a touch bumped to the tips and corners.
