As described by Nick Harvill Libraries

Ned Guymon assembled one of the great mystery libraries (16,000 volumes), which he bequeathed to Occidental College. It is uncommon for a book from that collection, with his distinctive bookplate, to be in private hands. One exception is this copy of Colin Watson's Snobbery with Violence, Crime Stories and Their Audience (First Edition, 1971). Book concerns how contemporary taste and opinions influenced such mystery writers as Ian Fleming and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Hardcover.
