Carr, John Dickson. The Eight of Swords. New York (1934). One of the four scarcest Carr books [Cooper and Pike, 2nd Ed., pg 72] that put him in the ranks with the heavyweights of his day due in large part to the endorsement by Dorothy L. Sayers on the cover of the jacket. Book is VG with a VG jacket that has evidence of previous tape repair to the verso which was removed at some point but has left some residual staining. For the most part not visible from the front except on the rear panel. $1550
