THE CASE OF THE SUBSTITUTE FACE (Intimate Presentation Copy of the First Edition)
Gardner, Erle Stanley. THE CASE OF THE SUBSTITUTE FACE. New York: William Morrow, 1938. First Edition, first printing. A Near Fine copy (covers slightly white-spotted, probably originating from contact with the dust jacket & front endpapers a little browned) in a NEAR FINE unrestored and unrepaired ORIGINAL PRICED ($2.00) DUST JACKET. The DJ has only minor wear to the extremities, the red back panel is entirely unfaded. PRESENTATION COPY WITH AN EXCELLENT INSCRIPTION BY THE AUTHOR on the front-free endpaper in the year of publication: "To Tee/who has a gift for putting stuff on paper and the thoughts to go with it/with love from Erle." On the facing paste-down, Gardner has written out his name in full and dated it: "Erle Stanley Gardner/ May 1938." Tee Rose, a young writer from San Francisco, became a lifelong friend of ESG and she usually received Gardner's latest book in the mail immediately upon its publication. We have in stock quite a few of his presentation copies to her dating from 1934 to the early 1960s. THE CASE OF THE SUBSTITUTE FACE is the 12th in Gardner's Perry Mason series. During a dark and stormy night aboard ship, a man goes missing. A portrait photograph is mysteriously changed out of a frame. Mason must solve the mystery to save a life.
