Biggers, Earl Derr  
The Chinese Parrot
 Picture
Publisher: Grosset & Dunlap Publishers New York, 1926.
The Chinese Parrot. By Earl Derr Biggs. New York: Grosset & Dunlap Publishers, 1926. Hardcover. This is an early Charlie Chan mystery. "Here is humor and with--gay young humor, and careless wit. And here is a fine plot which is ingeniously contrived and perfectly solved. The California desert, with its deformed Joshua trees, its vast expanse of sand, its incredibly near stars under tremendous night, is the location. But we have glimpses of San Francisco and Hollywood with streets showing ‘living examples of what the well-dressed man and woman will wear if not carefully watched.’ Charlie Chan, the self-deprecatory Chinese detective, whom readers of The House Without A Key will remember with joy, brings the Jordan necklace to the lonely ranch of the great financier, P. J. Madden. The Chinese Parrot shrieks in the night--HELP! MURDER! PUT DOWN THAT GUN!--and from then on sinister, funny, unexpected, desperate, comical, and highly disturbing things keep happening on the ranch. They build up to a thrilling climax." 316 pages. This is an early edition of an early Charlie Chan novel. It is difficult to find with a dust jacket! Book is in GOOD or better condition. Dust jacket is in GOOD condition; shelfwear. Good. Hard Cover. Book condition: Good

Publisher: Harper & Brothers, Publishers, 1953 New York.
Book. Book condition: Good. Good. Hardcover 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall 'Nigel Strangeways, happily, here returns to his career in crime detection. Strangeways was asked by Sir Archibald Blick, an arrogant business tycoon, to go down to the village of Priors Unborne to investigate some extremely unpleasant blackmail letters, which were rapidly destroying the peace of that hamlet - turning neighbor against neighbor. Strangeways' investigations uncovered some extraordinary and wicked behavior, and while he was working rapidly toward a solution a murderer removed one of the key figures from the scene. Before the murderer's identity was revealed Strangeways found himself very much involved with an amazing group of people - i9ncluding the lovely cripple, Celandine Chantmerle, her quiet sister Rosebay, a lovelorn Vicar and a young man who resembled a big white caterpillar. Nicholas Blake's many fans will welcome this newest novel by a writer about whom Howard Haycraft wriete: 'Nicholas Blake is one of the rare writers who manage to bring high literacy and thrills together under one cover - by any criterion, he is a major figure and force in the modern detective story.'" 249 pages.

Hangman's Harvest
 Picture
Publisher: Henry Holt and Company, 1952 New York.
Book. Book condition: Very Good. Good. Hardcover 12mo - over 6¾ - 7¾" tall First edition (stated). "Milo March, a rough private eye from Denver, is sent to Aragon City (which could be Hollywood) to help the City Betterment Committee wipe out the gangsters and hoodlums controlling brothels, bookies, gamblers, shady night clubs, and the dope traffic. Milo is well equipped for the job. He has plenty of gall, good looks, an unlimited expense account, a fishtail Cadillac, and wide experience with lawbreakers - and beautiful, grateful women. As March starts his snooping, he is surprised to discover a comely blonde in his bed - undeniably dead. And there are other ladies who complicate his life - Vega Russell, the famous movie star; Janet Marshall, daughter of one of the crooked politicians Milo is out to get; Betty Carr, the almost-nice girl; and Elizabeth Saxon, the only woman who doesn't tumble for Milo. Miss Saxon is 68 and more interested in sleuthing than romance. Hangman's Harvest is fast, rough, and tough. It ends in an abandoned night club, in one of the most furious fist fights and gun battles ever written in a mystery-chase novel." 211 pages. Book is in VERY GOOD condition. Dust jacket is in GOOD or better condition; crease and wear to top rear edge.
