I was in touch with Colin a few years back (2017) and his son, Jeremy replied. We proposed doing a deluxe rebinding of Colin Dexter’s THE RIDDLE OF THE THIRD MILE (an early Inspector Morse) first edition. Permission was obtained from Mr Dexter junior as Colin was ill and it was agreed that we use a facsimile autograph as Colin was blind. This is covered in a letter from Jeremy Dexter provided. In addition, it has an extra page about Colin Dexter’s literary career and about Morse. I am also providing a photograph of John Thaw (TV’s Morse) holding a presentation copy of THE JEWEL THAT WAS OURS cc 1993 with Colin Dexter. It is a very nice picture. It is twelve lettered copies. I supply the original jacket as well.
