The Awdrey-Gore Legacy was published in 1972 by Dodd, Mead & Company, New York. Dedicated to Agatha Christie, this title was published in hard cover with a matching printed dust jacket. This book is included in Amphigorey Also, and was also printed as a poster. The copy I am showing is signed and inscribed to me by Edward Gorey. While mystery based, The Awdrey-Gorey Legacy predates Mr. Gorey's involvement with Mystery! on PBS which began its run in 1980.
Edward Gorey was a self proclaimed Agatha Christie enthusiast, and stated that he read everything she wrote several times. This homage to the murder mystery is not so much a full fledged story as a deconstructed collection of all the bits and bobs that go into the making of a good mystery. In many ways, I think of this volume as the Edward Gorey book-version of the board game Clue.
