First edition, first printing. Original green cloth with gilt titles to the spine, in dustwrapper. A fine copy, the binding square and firm, the cloth bright and fresh. The contents, with the faintest offsetting to the endpapers, are otherwise clean and bright throughout and without inscriptions or stamps. Complete with the very near fine lightly rubbed and nicked original illustrated dustwrapper that is ever so slightly toned to the spine. Not price clipped (7s. 6d. to the front flap).
The last novel by the writer and suffragist Stella Benson. A retelling of The Book of Tobit, centring on Russian émigrés fleeing to East Asia in the wake of the Russian Revolution and Russian Civil War.
