About this Item

"Ketchum, Philip." DEATH IN THE LIBRARY. New York: Dell #1, [1943]. A Near Fine, square copy with no reading crease and only a minimum of incidental edge wear. Previous owner signature lightly penciled on front free endpaper. The distinctive abstract cover art for this bibliomystery was by William Strohmer and it features for the first time the iconic Dell "Keyhole" trademark. The author was, in fact, female: Miriam Leslie (1902-1969) wrote six novels as Ketchum. The keystone for any Dell collector and this is about as nice an example as one might hope for given the perishable nature of a wartime paperback novel. Bookseller Inventory # 002009
