London: Peter Owen Limited, 1959. First edition in English. Novel set in Turin and Rome among the political conflicts of Mussolini's Italy. Blue-gray cloth, 206 pages, printed dustjacket. The book would be near fine but for a few scholarly margin lines and notes, a name and date on the front free endpaper and an odd inscription on same. The previous owner of the book, from whom we purchased a partial collection, was fond of writing little reviews and comments on the endpapers before send them along to his then-girlfriend, who he later married and who became a librarian. This volume has the following note: "without impugning the quality of the writing, this book smells musty, an old attic book". The book no longer smells musty, and perhaps never really did all that much. The mylar protected dustjacket is not priceclipped and has just a bit of edgewear and a one inch closed tear at the top of the rear cover, an inked in price on the inner flap. . First Edition in English. Hard Cover. Very Good/Very Good. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. Dust jacket present. First Edition.
