About this Item

First Impression (no additional printings noted). 8vo; 255, [1]pp. Publisher's scarlet cloth, the spine lettered in black, the bottom edge untrimmed; in a pictorial dust jacket designed by Ruth Atkinson. Just about Fine, with a dust-spotted top edge; in a better than Near Fine jacket, the spine toned, the front panel somewhat browned with a short closed tear. Houghton's metaphysical thrillers were acclaimed in the Thirties and Forties by a range of writers, from P. G. Wodehouse to Henry Miller, but his works, including verse and drama, have almost faded from view since, and undeservedly so. Note: With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed. Bookseller Inventory # BB0753
