By Henry Thomas and Dana Lee Thomas. "More fantastic than fiction -- true stories of million-dollar hoaxes that made the world's headlines." Cases include Highgate Tomb, Vidocq's last case, and others.
This little first is not in great shape, but it's 70 years old, and it's still readable (or displayable) if you're mindful, although the whole Permabooks statement of purpose on the back cover is a bit ironic. The spine's a bit loose, and was repaired by a previous owner with scotch tape; there's heavy page toning, and damage to the covers. Have a look at the pictures (which include the ToC) and see if you're interested in adopting this "senior book."
