Kanga Creek / A Passion Before Death / A Bed of Feathers / The Penultimate Adventure
Four novels, each with a tipped-in frontispice, all printed in 902 copies only, each in a fine modern Art Deco style. All four books published in 1935, but this collected edition was probably bound later using unsold copies. Illustrations by Dolice, Jacob Krakowsky (Jack Krakow) and John Gram. Collected in one volume in publisher’s light blue cloth with richly gilt spine, and with dust jacket (covered in mylar), a bit browned along the edges. Kanga Creek includes ‘Biographical Memoir in the Form of An Imaginary Conversation Between Havelock Ellis, a Young Doctor Without a Practice, and Olive Schreiner a Young Woman without a Husband’ by Norman Lockridge. The Black Hawk Press was owned by Samuel Roth (1894-1974, a pseudonym: Norman Lockridge), i.a. publisher of the American Aphrodite magazine. Very clean and crisp inside. Dust jacket with a few chips, a closed tear on the spine fold, mild soiling and roughing on the edges. Still a very good dust jacket to a flawless interior. Size: 6" - 9" 0.0.
