NY: Covici Friede, 1937. 1st American Edition. Hardcover. First printing of the American edition of Lawrence Durell's second book, written under the pseudonym of "Charles Norden". Near fine condition with a very good dustjacket. The interior of the book has some slight age toning to endpapers and the light tan cloth shows a few smudges of dirt but the book is otherwise flawless. The jacket has mild shelfwear to include tiny 1/8-inch chips along the lower edge of the front panel and the loss of the top 1/4-inch of the jacket's spine. The canary yellow back panel shows a modest amount of general dirt picked up from normal usage over the decades. Item #1226808
An uncommon Durrell work, difficult to find in any semi-decent dustjacket.
