Description:
London : Victor Gollancz, 1944. First edition. His uncommon first book - later published in the USA as "Obsequies at Oxford". Gervase Fen making his first appearance in a witty and classical locked-room mystery with some theatrical types in wartime Oxford. "Whatever his true name is, he is most certainly a gentleman who knows Oxford backwards, forwards, and inside out. For his murders take place in the colleges, hotels and theatres of that city, and although these are in every case fictional, the calmer atmosphere of the Senior Common Room and the Porter's Lodge is unmistakeably authentic" (The Sphere, 11th March 1944). Crown 8vo (183 x 120mm). (160)pp. Plan. Bound, without half-title, in an elegant recent half green morocco, banded and gilt; top edge gilt; original cloth backstrip preserved at rear; wartime paper lightly tanned, but otherwise a very good copy in an attractive binding.

International Polygonics Ltd.. Fine. 1991. First Thus. Paperback. 1558821082 . As new. First Thus, released with the original title. Crispin's debut novel first published in 1944 initiates the amateur sleuthing of Gervase Fen, an Oxford Language and Literature Professor, thus... "The book abounds in literary allusions ranging from classical antiquity to the mid-20th century." From the back: ... The cast includes a playwright, a producer, a famous actress, a conniving actress (always a highly desirable victim), an organist, two undergraduates, a journalist, and an artillery captain. You'll laugh and cheer while Fen, at his irrepressible best, finds murder in the wings and suspicion on stage as the curtain rises on one of his most intriguing cases ever. ; Library of Crime Classics; 0.8 x 8.1 x 5.4 Inches; 223 pages .
