First edition, first impression. Girdle of Venus is the story of Marcia Trapper, or ‘Madame Marjanah’, a seaside town fortune teller whose prowess at influencing people soon starts to play tricks on her own mind. This is the first copy we have come across to have a dust jacket.

Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine gilt. With the dust jacket. Spine and board edges a little faded, front board faintly bowed, gilt dulled, edges of text block, endpapers and endleaves foxed. A very good copy in a rubbed and slightly chipped jacket with some faint soiling to rear panel.
