About This Item

London: Victor Gollancz Ltd, 1932. First edition, first impression; rare in the jacket, which prints Gollancz's sensational list of the possible identities of "Francis Iles", including E. M. Forster, R. Austin Freeman, Patrick Hamilton, Aldous Huxley, Mrs. Belloc Lowndes, Eden Phillpotts, Osbert Sitwell, Hugh Walpole and H. G. Wells. Octavo. Original black cloth, titles to spine in green. With dust jacket. Housed in a black quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. A few very faint marks to cloth, mild partial tanning to endpapers. An excellent copy in the spine-tanned and dust soiled but remarkably intact jacket with two very small sections of loss from the top edge (one 3x65mm and one 2x40mm) and otherwise only very light rubbing to ends and corners.
