First U.S. edition. "Eight tales, not of detection, but of deliberate improbability. In the hands of G. K. this means humor and a moral point, and since he is a practitioner of the genre, his improbabilities are full of practical detail such as might furnish food for thought in a piece of detection." - Barzun and Taylor, A Catalogue of Crime 2410. Bleiler (1948), p. 77. Tuck (1974), p. 99. Some light dust soiling to cloth, upper rear corner tip bumped, a very good copy. (#138384).
