Golden age detective fiction, weird and speculative fiction, with a particular focus on pre-1940 titles. Wodehouse and Agatha Christie are also areas of focus.
A fine first English edition of this compilation of Foreign Legion stories by the author of Beau Geste (1924), in the fabulous Art Deco design correctly priced at 7/6 on front flap. 'Very many of these men are examples of the "flawed blades" that have snapped, leaving little but the sheath that once contained the sword - spirits that have broken, leaving only a weary body.'
