The Rent in the Veil.London: Robert Hale Limited, 1951 Stock Code: 84684
First edition, first impression. Margery Lawrence (1889-1969) was a prolific author and self-proclaimed Bohemian whose interest and adventures in Spiritualism influenced almost all of her output of short stories, poetry, detective, fantasy, and romance novels. Her first work, a book of poems, Songs of Childhood, and Other Verses was published by her father in 1913. The majority of Lawrence's works are now "extraordinarily difficult to find" (Bleiler).
Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine gilt. With the dust jacket.
Just a little rubbed at extremities, spine faded, lower corner bumped, contents toned. An excellent copy in the lightly rubbed jacket with some nicks and short splits.
