Beaton's "Death of a Gossip" is listed in the WorldCat as a first edition in the OPL collection. I would like to read this book but am unable to
Yes, unfortunately you found an old record as we were in the process of removing the book due to its condition. WorldCat sometimes takes a while to catch up with us. The only way we could get it would be through the interlibrary loan process.
Sorry, and thanks for your question.
