(no dust jacket) [nice clean copy, minimal handling wear, very slight bumping at top front corner; review copy, with publisher's slip laid in; see note about signature]. (B&W frontispiece) An account of the life and crimes of Thomas Griffiths Wainewright, artist, writer, and poisoner. This copy of the book is distinguished by bearing the SIGNATURE of underappreciated crime novelist Dorothy B. Hughes on the ffep; no doubt she received this review copy in her capacity as mystery-book reviewer for the Los Angeles Times and other newspapers, a job which she began doing in 1940, and continued for decades after her own writing career had ended. [Scanned image shows review slip and signature.] Signed by Notable Personage, Unrelated
