John Jay Chichester Biography
John Jay Chichester as an author is, ironically, something of a mystery I'm afraid.
As to the books. American first editions precede the English in every case.
The three books published in 1929 may not be chronological.
There is a short story "The Unconscious Accomplice" by John Jay Chichester in Detective Story Magazine: April 20th 1929
First editions in jackets are rare, UK editions much rarer than US, and there are some very attractive dust jackets
