(no dust jacket, although the front panel of same has been trimmed and affixed to the ffep) [moderately worn copy, light bumping/fraying to bottom corners, portion of jacket text affixed to front pastedown, small stains on a couple of pages]. "This is Mr. Keeler's most breath-taking achievement....full of unexpected denouements in startling succession, so that the reader has the experience of waking up from dream within dream"; in amongst this fervid dreaminess unfolds "the legend of Bayard De Lancey, King of Thieves, whom lesser thieves feel honor to have known." "Here Mr. Keeler's genius for the mystery-plot comes into an amazing perfectness." (And doesn't a phrase like "amazing perfectness" make you suspect that Keeler also wrote his own jacket blurbs?)
