First Penguin edition, first print paperback of a Vintage Murder Mystery TOM BROWN'S BODY by Gladys Mitchell, published by Penguin Books Ltd., London, in 1953. It was first published in 1949 by Michael Joseph.

The book is in good condition with some slight wear (light rubbing to edges around the spine, tiny closed tear to bottom of spine, a creasing line across the bottom corner at the front, a small srain at the back and some tanning to the pages). Internally, the pages are clean and tight with no tears and no inscriptions.

Gladys Mitchell was born in Cowley, Oxfordshire, England on April 19, 1901. She was educated at Goldsmiths' College and University College, London. After graduating, she became a teacher and taught English, history, and games at numerous schools until her retirement in 1961. She is best known for her detective novels featuring Mrs. Bradley, the heroine of 66 detective novels.

In addition to her 66 Mrs. Bradley novels Mitchell also used the pseudonyms of Stephen Hockaby (for a series of historical novels) and Malcolm Torrie (for a series of detective stories featuring an architect named Timothy Herring) and wrote ten children's books under her own name. In 1976, she received the Crime Writers' Association Silver Dagger award. She died on July 27, 1983

Tom Brown's Body is a book in the Mrs Bradley series.

"Gerald Conway was a junior master at Spey College. The Head considered him a reliable history specialist and a useful games coach, but his fellow masters thought him a rude and insufferably presumptuous young man and the boys called him a mean and treacherous beast. But, as Inspector Gavin said. ‘Public schoolboys don’t murder the staff,’ Mrs Bradley wasn’t so certain; at least she felt sure they knew more than they would say. The erudite Micklethwaite, for example, an expert in Judo, refused to speak of the abominable Conway who had accused him of cheating in the exam for the Divinity Prize. Mrs Bradley had to use tact and guile and a bit of black magic to make boys and masters tell her the whole story."

'Judged the equal of Dorothy L. Sayers and Agatha Christie... but more like a mad combination of them both' – Independent on Sunday

'Mrs. Lestrange Bradley…is by far the best and most vital English female detective.' – Observer
