“STORME, Michael” – [DAWSON, George H.] : DAME IN MY BED.

Cleveland : Kaywin Publishers, (1951). First known edition : although the book records an earlier (UK) Archer Press copyright date of 1950, there appears to be no trace of an earlier UK edition, which is not listed in the Holland checklist. Soft-mouthed dames and hard-eyed gamblers, thrills, chills and frills – the usual Nick Cranley scenario.
Crown 8vo (19cm). 128pp. Original pictorial stapled wrappers – a lively design by Reginald Heade; slightly worn at head and chipped at foot; wrappers slightly worn and chipped; text lightly tanned, but still a good copy. Just two copies (British Library and Indiana) located in major libraries worldwide.
