1 Haycraft, Howard MURDER FOR PLEASURE: The Life and Times of the Detective Story
New York: D. Appleton-Century, 1941. First edition: third printing. Hardcover. Owner's signature to front free endpaper, very mild spine crease, else near fine in gilt-lettered red cloth; in lightly soiled, rubbed and edgeworn dust jacket. Illustrated with author photo-portraits; appended by a quiz and a ''Who's Who in Detection.'' 
Classic, pioneering history of the genre. Though this ground had been earlier (and notably) tilled by Thomson, and later by Symons, et alia, this is still an essential resource, and should be on every mystery enthusiast's reference shelf. A nice copy. 
Price: 50.00 USD
