A first edition of Ellis Peter’s A Morbid Taste for Bones, A Mediaeval Whodunnit
“A very nice copy of the first Brother Cadfael novel. In this book Edith Pargeter combined her excellent historical novel abilities with her nom-de-plume Ellis Peters’ well-constructed mysteries and started the boom in historical mysteries that continues to this day. There are many earlier examples of the form, but this is where it takes off and becomes a major publishing category. Historically important, well written, and a scarce book to find in nice condition.”
A first edition of Robert A. Heinlein’s The Moon is a Harsh Mistress.
“An acceptable copy of a book that is seldom offered.”
