No jacket. Edges and gilt on spine lightly rubbed, a few light stains to a few pages. 1949 Hard Cover. xi, 269 pp. An authentic, intramural and operational presentation of the Yard which records the patience, perseverance of its men, the coordination of the divisions. From the files, a sequence of cases and their completion provides a working knowledge of the C.I.D. as they track down murderers, blackmailers, drug dealers, anarchists, spies, etc. and the special branches (The Flying Squad, Railway Police, Port of London Authority) as well as the departmental divisions (Medical Service; Laboratory; Criminal Record Office; etc.) are fully detailed. A credit- but never glamour- giving account of an almost legendary institution, this has its special audience.
