  • WOODS, Sara (pseud. of Sara Bowen-Judd)
    AND SHAME THE DEVIL (leather binding)

    Edition: First US edition

    New York: Holt, Rinehart & Winston, 1972. Bound in half brown morocco and brown cloth, spine with raised bands and gilt ornament, top edges gilt, marbled endpapers. Spine very lightly sunned, else a fine copy. Most unusual to see a modern crime novel in a bespoke leather binding. Sometimes publishers bind a copy or two in leather for the author's own library, and while that is plausible in this case, I can offer no evidence that is so. Woods has long lived in Nova Scotia, Canada, where she began writing, but has set all of her novels in her native England.

Edition of 400 copies. I feel fairly certain that the text changes were made by the author himself. They look like his hand, and given the nature of the changes, including the addition of new words, I can't think who else would have done it.
