Notes

First edition, first printing. John Clifford Cowles (1861-1951) was an American artist, and this was only work of fiction. A review on rear of dust jacket states "Read It Once, You Will Read It Twice" - a claim somewhat undermined by the uncut pages of this copy.

Octavo. Original pink cloth, titles to front cover and spine gilt, gilt vignette of the Buddha to front cover, top edge pink, some pages uncut. With the dust jacket.

Condition

A few marks to board edges, a few pages clumsily opened on fore edge; an excellent copy in the slightly rubbed jacket with short closed tear to foot of front panel.
