AMES, Delano. Corpse Diplomatique. (London : Hodder and Stoughton, 1953). Second Impression. Pp. (4),5-253,(3). 8vo, illustrated yellow card covers. In the Yellow Jackets series. A transplanted American, Delano Ames was born in Mt. Vernon, Ohio, in 1906, and died in Madrid in 1987. In 1937, Ames moved to England, and in 1948 introduced us to that most delightful of all British detecting couples, Dagobert Brown and Jane Hamish (later Brown). Unlike their counterparts in America, the Browns were pretty much intellectual equals. Second-last signature starting to loosen, else very good in spine-chipped, torn-and-tape-repaired, price-clipped dustjacket. 35.00
