The Adrian H. Goldstone collection of mystery and detective fiction [three parts, December 9, 10, 11, complete]

San Francisco: California Book Auction Galleries, 1981. Unpaginated, together some 260p. or more, illustrations here & there in the text. Set; matching grey 9 x 6 inch decorated wraps, lightest edgewear. Complete set (four leaves) "prices realized" folded twice and laid in.

Not expertly catalogued --the infrequent annotations are routine biographical data, the jacket reproductions not shrewdly chosen-- but the range is enormous, Goldstone was expert, and the persons buying were expert, hence prices-realized list is more than useful, however dated.

Cat.No: 75613
