About this Item

First Prentice Hall edition, 1967. FDR One Evening Posed a "mystery plot" to Editor Fulton Oursler: "How can a man disappear with five million dollars in any negotiable form and not be traced?" The result was a chain mystery novel in which each chapter was written by a major author of the day -- Rupert Hughes, S.S. Van Dine, Samuel Hopkins Adams, John Erskine, and others. A unique and campy mystery, very entertaining, and with pop art illustrations by Arnold Roth. Something of an historical curiosity, and "just plain fun." Binding is clean and tight, with boards slightly faded in a few areas. DJ lightly foxed on rear and outer edge. (NB: The true first edition of this unusual book was first published as "The President¿s Mystery Story," N.Y., Farrar, in 1935. First edition of this uncommon round-robin mystery based on a plot idea by Roosevelt. Copies are hard to find and sell for about $175.). Bookseller Inventory # 050458
