    A Great Fall is an awarded non-fiction book written by Mildred Savage (1919–2011) and first published in 1970.

    On June 16th, 1965 in a small town in Litchfield County in Connecticut, a young wife and mother were found brutally murdered in her home. This is the story of that murder and the trial that became two trials and exploded into a cause celebre.

    This softcover edition by Fawcett Crest from 1971 displays Davison Arabesque on its cover, being used in both upper- and lowercase characters.

    It seems this is the third example documented on Fonts In Use of Davison Arabesque in use with lowercase characters, after two great findings by Christopher Bentley.
