Book description
Margery Allingham's first collection of stories (including the short novel The Case of the Late Pig) has only been published in the United States - which has deprived readers elsewhere of some fascinating insights into Albert Campion's life and career. Each case is prefaced with notes from Campion's casebook, including definitive dates and the odd personal detail ('Fielding offered to take my appendix out, gratis. Thanked him kindly but declined.' - 'The Case of the Old Man in the Window'). All the stories are available in other volumes but without the notes, and in some cases with inferior texts.

Collection contains:

The Case of the Late Pig (novella)
The Case of the White Elephant
The Case of the Man with the Sack
The Border-Line Case
The Case of the Widow
The Case of the Pro and the Con
The Case of the Old Man in the Window
