First edition, first impression of the first book in the Children of Violence series. Martha Quest follows the life of a young woman of colonial descent in Africa, who rebels against her parents’ stifling and unexamined lives only to find herself in the same situation as she becomes an adult.

Octavo. Original green cloth, titles to spine gilt. With the dust jacket. A little fading to spine and edges of boards, light partial tanning to free endpapers. An excellent copy in the dust jacket with a few tiny nicks and short splits.
