Fair). The prolific author, whose books have sold hundreds of millions of copies, also wrote Western novels, science fiction, short stories and articles. Gardner was also creator of the Perry Mason TV series (1957-1966), appearing in one episode as a judge. Horizontal fold touches capital letters and final flourish of signature. Otherwise, fine condition.
