Clifton Robbins Author Biography - Information About the Author
Clifton Robbins, born 1890 and died 1964, is a Hubin listed crime and mystery author.
One of the more obscure Golden Age writers but collectable non-the-less. First edition books in dust jackets are not common but when they do turn up they should be cheaper than many other books of this period, not cheap - just less expensive than some.
Expect the Ernest Benn dustwrappers to be dull, to say the least.
All the American editions known have been listed, re the US Library of Congress.
