Gardner, Erle Stanley. THE D. A. DRAWS A CIRCLE. New York: William Morrow, (1939). First Edition. A FINE copy in a NEAR FINE, bright and unfaded ORIGINAL (Priced $2.00) DUST JACKET (just lightly used). WARMLY INSCRIBED on the front-free endpaper: "To Tee/ who is so much a part of the gang -- with love from Erle." Underneath ESG has signed his name in full followed by Feb 1940 and underneath that "New Orleans." Tee Rose, a young writer from San Francisco, was a lifelong friend of ESG and she was always presented with Gardner's latest book -- usually immediately upon publication. We have in stock quite a few of his presentation copies to her dating from 1934 to the early 1950s. THE D. A. DRAWS A CIRCLE is the third of nine novels written by Gardner about small town California district attorney Doug Selby and fictional Madison City. Particularly nice cover art. As a sidebar, this is the only one of the many Tee Rose inscribed books we have in stock which has "New Orleans" as the location in which the book was signed. Logic seems to suggest he was there to research his 1942 novel OWLS DON'T BLINK which was set in the New Orleans French Quarter. Bookseller Inventory # 001962
