Vickers, Roy THE MYSTERY OF THE SCENTED DEATH
London: Herbert Jenkins Limited, 1922. First edition, first printing. Very good plus, quite sound and clean, with some mild wear and tanning to spine, a few tiny nicks, endsheets offset; jacket is lacking, but the front panel of the jacket has been tipped into rear endsheet. Literary agency label pasted to front endsheet.
First novel from the creator of the Department of Dead Ends, and the first appearance of series character Inspector J. Rason; here in a quite decent copy, with at least the front panel of the jacket--and the marvelous jacket art--preserved.
