[HLMainPic] This novel "fills the gap between 'Young Women of 1914' & 'The Case of Sergeant Grischa'" according to the author's endnote. At the time of writing he had been expelled from Germany & resided in the USA; he notes that he "sketched out" the book in 1927, & began writing it twice, in 1928 & 1930, but that his expulsion (& the confiscation of his manuscripts) had delayed publication. Orig. black cloth, gilt, minor staining but generally VG & very scarce in chipped & rubbed but attractive dw: scarce thus. See illustration on our website.   £35
