1 Carr, John Dickson (aka Carter Dickson) Fire, Burn!
New York Harper & Brothers 1957 First American Edition Hardcover Very Good in Good+ dust jacket 
Illustrated by Anderson, Rus (cover)

Black cloth over reddish brown cloth, white lettering, 265 pp, 'Notes for the Curious' at end. Spine slightly cocked, corners worn, minor edge wear, some darkening to pastedowns and edges. A bit of tanning but text is clean and unmarked. Jacket in new Brodart with moderate edge wear, some chipping mostly to corners and top and base of spine, some rubbing and darkening. Stated first edition, date code E-G (May, 1957 I believe). Overall a nice copy.

"London was wrapped in fog when Inspector John Cheviot got into a 20th century taxi. The city was still fogbound when he got out - but the cab was a hackney coach, and the year was 1829. There were things Cheviot remembered but could not use - like how to analyze fingerprints. And things he didn't know that he could have used - like how far advanced his love affair with the beautiful Lady Drayton really was. But there wasn't time to learn, because Cheviot suddenly found himself pitted against the cleverest murderer of his long Scotland Yard career."; 7¾" - 9¾" Tall

For the clever murderer, however, a house visit by the famed crime-solver Dr. Gideon Fell was just what the constable ordered.
