Description:

Copyright 1929. SYNOPSIS: "Mr. Griffiths, the old registrar of Hallam, England notices that no natural deaths are being reported in his county. Similar reports drift in from other counties as it becomes certain that people are no longer dying naturally anywhere in the whole South of England. Murder and suicide are on the increase as elderly people begin to feel uncomfortable for without deaths where are property inheritances? Births are still occuring normally and visions of food shortages will be the result where before they had always depended upon death to keep life in balance." Purple cloth over board with black diamonds and lettering on spine, 320 pages. Board and spine edges are lightly worn but not frayed with a couple of bent page corners. Page edges are dusty but not marked with slightly age-toned page surfaces. Binding is secure and book lays square. Dustjacket has edge-chipping, 'Bar' written at lower spine, a small hole on front flap bend, and water-stain at back flap top bend. Front flap has been creased 1/2 inch from edge.
