The Red Priest.
First edition, first impression. The author’s last book, published before his death in March 1957, is about a priest whose ambition is thwarted by his violent and domineering nature, and his passionate and stormy marriage with his beautiful, and equally strongminded, wife.
Octavo. Original dark red boards, gilt lettered spine on a black ground. With the dust jacket. Spine only slightly rolled. An excellent copy in price-clipped jacket, designed by Michael Ayrton.
