Thanks to the 10th power for posting this information. I thought my Lizzie library was stacked, but I ended up buying 16 books!
They should arrive Friday – I’m going to have a whacking good weekend…

Greetings, Mystery Lover.
Dunn and Powell Books is pleased to offer a short catalogue devoted to one of the most famous of all unsolved crimes: The Lizzie Borden Case. Most of the 92 items in the list are from the library of Ken Souza, former editor of THE LIZZIE BORDEN QUARTERLY. Highlights include a first edition of the rare THE FALL RIVER TRAGEDY by Edwin Porter (Lizzie Borden is reputed to have attempted to purchase and destroy all copies of this book) and a libretto of the opera "Lizzie Borden" signed by the composer Jack Beeson.
