Basil (Don) Cat and Feather.

£750

First edition.
London. Philip Earle, 1931
Cat and Feather represents one of the most notorious and egregious examples of plagiarism ever seen in UK publishing history. Its text is lifted nearly word-for-word from American Roger Scarlett’s The Back Bay Murders, published in the US the previous year. As such it was never republished and so now is a very scarce item.
