About this title


Originally published in 1912. This wonderful book follows a story of Professor Higginson,a tall, thin, exceedingly shy and nervous psychologist on his journey when he comes across the magnificent green overcoat after good-byes at an agonised party... The green of it subdued, a warm and lovely green; its cloth sof and thick, pliable and smooth; the rich fur at the collar and cuffs was a promise of luxury lining. Now the Devil during all Professor Higginson's life had had trifling fun with him until that memorable moment.. The opportunity, as the reader will soon discover, was (from the devils point of view) remarkable and rare. More, far more, that the professors sterile soul was involved in the issue. The green overcoat appeared seductive, then violently alluring, next- and in a veru few seconds- irresistable. With rapidity worthy of a greater game, and to him most unusual, he whisked the garment from the chair, slipped in to the shadows and wriggled into it. The Devil saw to it that it fitted. The door shut upon the man as he went striding out in to the drenching storm....
