About This Item

New York: Harcourt, Brace and Company, [1934]., 1934. First edition. First U.S. edition. Fine tight copy in dust jacket with light restoration to the spine ends, corners, and extremities. A classic of the genre as Lord Peter Wimsey tries to solve the murder of an unknown corpse in a quiet country churchyard. "Through it all, grave and gay, goes the pealing of the bells and the great voice of "Tailor Paul" tolling out the nine "tailors," the nine teller-strokes that ring for the death of a man." The author's was praised for her ability to translate the technical descriptions of the bell ringing into a life-like picture of the inexperienced ringer making awful faces as he mouthed and mumbled his way through the peal. A sharp copy.
