Josephine Tey was a pseudonym of Elizabeth Mackintosh. Josephine was her mother's first name and Tey the surname of an English Grandmother. As Josephine Tey, she wrote six mystery novels including Scotland Yard's Inspector Alan Grant.The first of these, 'The Man in the Queue' (1929) was published under the pseudonym of Gordon Daviot , whose name also appears on the title page of another of her 1929 novels, 'Kit An Unvarnished History'. She also used the Daviot by-line for a biography of the 17th century cavalry leader John Graham, which was entitled 'Claverhouse' (1937). Mackintosh also wrote plays (both one act and full length), some of which were produced during her lifetime, under the pseudonym Gordon Daviot. The district of Daviot, near her home of Inverness in Scotland, was a location her family had vacationed. The name Gordon does not appear in either her family or her history.Elizabeth Mackintosh came of age during World War I, attending Anstey Physical Training College in Birmingham, England during the years 1915-1918. Upon graduation, she became a physical training instructor for eight years. In 1926, her mother died and she returned home to Inverness to care for her invalid father. Busy with household duties, she turned to writing as a diversion, and was successful in creating a second career. Alfred Hitchcock filmed one of her novels, 'A Shilling for Candles' (1936) as 'Young and Innocent' in 1937 and two other of her novels have been made into films, 'The Franchise Affair' (1948), filmed in 1950, and 'Brat Farrar' (1949), filmed as 'Paranoiac' in 1963. In addition a number of her works have been dramatised for radio.Her novel 'The Daughter of Time' (1951) was voted the greatest mystery novel of all time by the Crime Writers' Association in 1990.

"This beautiful book will prove irresistible to both serious collectors of detective fiction first editions as well as to lovers of the artwork of the 1920s, 30s and 40s. A nostalgic survey of the artwork of detective fiction dustwrappers, it features intriguing chapters such as 'Damsels in Distress', 'Murder on the Move' and 'Pastimes in Purgatory'." "Lavishly illustrated with a 12 page colour section and over 300 large black and white illustrations, this book provides a unique opportunity to see first edition dustwrappers rarely available to the public. The wrappers are fully described, dated with credit to the publisher and the artist, if known. A wide range of famous detective writers is represented along with their detectives. Included in this fascinating volume is a chapter devoted solely to the artists, a consideration of their styles, and references to further examples of their work."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
