Printing Details

First edition, hardback in dustwrapper. 19.5 × 12.5cm, 63pp

A novella by Ralph Mottram, author of the Spanish Farm trilogy. Of chief interest with this copy, is that it was sold from Sylvia Beach's Shakespeare & Co bookshop at 12 rue de L'Odeon in Paris and has their bookseller's ticket to the rear pastedown (the shop opened at this address in 1922 and closed during the German Occupation in 1941).


The book is in very good condition, the dustwrapper is quite heavily chipped to the edges but now within a protective sleeve.
