Brown w/purple lettering and spine decorations. Ex hospital library w/stamp to front endpaper, remnants of due slip to reverse of rear endpaper, DJ flaps glued to pastedowns. Minor edgewar/rubbing. Text is overall clean and bright with the exception of a soil mark at pg 90-91 which translates through several pages before and after. "Seldom if ever has there been a mystery story quite like this one. Yes, there are murders in it- two of them, in fact. And there's a mystery of other descriptions too. Besides that there's a picture of university life that will probably cause some Big Red faces on at least one large Eastern campus. There are some wonderful and just-barely-printable limericks (you are even privileged to watch a Genius At Work in one passage). There is a lot of curious esoteric lore here and there, of special interest to bibliophiles. " (from the jacket blurb). Bookseller Inventory # G21608
