Spencer Dean Biography - Information About the Author
Spencer Dean is a pseudonym of Prentice Winchell born 1895 and died 1976.
The American first edition books precede the British editions in all cases. The UK books are part of the glorious British bloodhound mystery series.
We've listed the books in the order in which they've been catalogued by the British Library.

Book collectors will find the American editions much more common than the British books which are in fact rare in jacket, the dustwrappers being more attractive on the UK books in most cases I think.
Ex-public library copies will be an issue for those seeking the British bloodhound editions, smallprint runs and large library allocations being the usual issue for less well known authors in the UK at the time.
