Notes: A mystery, here in a pre-publication state of unbound gatherings (printed pages assembled for binding). In a dust jacket printed with four different prices (perhaps they hadn't decided yet how much to charge?).
Edition + Condition: First printing sheets (stated), stamped with the publication date on the title page and laid into a trial dust jacket. The jacket is split at the spine and heavily reinforced with tape on the back (verso).
Publication: New York: The Macmillan Company, 1946.
