PimPage: An Occasional Feature in Which I Call Attention to Books of Possible Interest

In July 2014 the Mysterious Bookshop will publish an annotated bibliography of first editions of mystery fiction set in the world of books. Written by the award-winning mystery expert and editor Otto Penzler, this comprehensive volume will cover every title published between 1849-2000 that falls into the bibliomystery sub-genre.  In addition to notes of issue on publication, publisher, and date, plus plot descriptions, Bibliomysteries will also include 130 full-color photographs of rare or especially interesting dust jackets and covers.  Limited to 200 signed and numbered copies, this bibliography is a must for collectors, booksellers, and scholars of mystery fiction.  
Price: $75.00

Prashant, it's a little pricey, but it looks like a great reference book.
