First UK edition, first impression. The book was first published the US the preceding year; originally published in German under the title De Vriendt kehrt heim in 1932. Set in Mandatory Palestine, the novel examines the ramifications of the murder of the Dutch Jew De Vriendt, a law professor controversial in Jewish politics for his accommodating stance toward the Arabs, who falls in love with a young Arab boy he tutors as a volunteer.

Octavo. Original red cloth, titles to spine gilt. With the dust jacket. A touch of foxing to edges; an excellent, bright copy in the fresh jacket with a couple of short closed tears to head of spine.
