Post van Dine, S.S.: Philo Vance Omnibus Vol 1. v2. 2nd Apr 2014

An omnibus edition of the first six "Philo Vance" mystery stories of S.S. van Dine, a pen-name of the American art critic and author Willard Huntington Wright (1888-1939). Although little known today, the Philo Vance books were extremely popular in the 1920s and 30s, and were later adapted for film and radio.

The books in the omnibus are:
  • The Benson Murder Case (1926)
  • The Canary Murder Case (1927)
  • The Greene Murder Case (1928)
  • The Bishop Murder Case (1928)
  • The Scarab Murder Case (1930)
  • The Kennel Murder Case (1933)

These are "traditional" murder stories, with an erudite detective, lots of maps and diagrams, innumerable footnotes explaining details, and so on. Excellent books.

All these books have been posted previously (by myself) as separate books, but this omnibus edition is much better formatted. Volume 2 to follow, containing books 7-12 of the series.

Enjoy!

Important Note

This book is in the "life+70" public domain, but is NOT in the US public domain. Please, therefore, DO NOT DOWNLOAD IT if you are in the United States. Thank you.

Happy, happy joy!!! Thanks, Harry. Your omnibus editions are always a big event in my calendar!

I created this for nobody's benefit but my own. If you find it enjoyable, that's a bonus .

So today this book becomes public domain for Europe. Yay!

I think I'll give it a try sometimes this year.

Thanks for making it available.

Thanks Harry!

I've seen the movie of The Kennel Murder Case, but I've never read any of the books. So this will go to the top of my list.

Not long ago I read a poem by Ogden Nash:

Philo Vance
Needs a kick
In the pance.
