GAME WITHOUT RULES.

New York: Harper & Row, (1967) dj. Hardcover first edition - A collection of eleven interlinked short stories featuring two unusual "spy catchers" - former M13 operatives Calder and Behrens now working for JSSIC(E) (the External Branch of the Joint Services Standing Intelligence Committee.) Both men were very quiet, neighbors in a small town in Kent where Daniel Joseph Calder lived with a golden deerhound named Rasselas, and John Calder indulged in his avocation of bee-keeping - and both sometimes silently disappeared for a while. The true first edition of this Queen's Quorum title (preceding the UK edition). Dust jacket praise from such diverse authors as Eudora Welty and Rex Stout. 246 pp. Dust jacket by Paul Spina.
Condition: Very near fine in a like dustjacket (blank bookplate on front endpaper, a bit of wear to the ends of the dj spine, original price of $4.95 on dj flap)
