The Turning Wheel.London : 1928 Stock Code: 62565
NotesFirst edition, first impression. With the author's signed presentation inscription to the front free endpaper, "With all sincere regards to my Cincinnati friends - Mr & Mrs Robert H Smith. July 22 1929 Paul Creswick". A rare fantasy about an antediluvian paradise arising from the subsiding ocean and proving eventually to be Atlantis. The jacket art is spectacular. Copac locates copies at just four British and Irish institutional libraries (BL, Scotland, Oxford, Trinity College Dublin), OCLC adding just a further five (Yale, Tulane, Miami,. Harry Ransom, Brigham Young).
Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to upper board and spine in black. With the pictorial dust jacket.
Contents a little browned, bookseller's stamp to front pastedown, tips very lightly rubbed but a very nice copy in the lightly marked dust jacket with some erosion at one fold and a couple of small splash marks to the spine panel.
