London: Collins, 1935. First edition. Hardcover. Near Fine / Near Fine. In original green cloth, lettered in gilt to the spine. In a bright example of the exceedingly scarce dust jacket. The jacket shows some minor wear to the spine ends. The cover art is by Lars (or perhaps Lara) Foster. The author was born Mary Nesta Skrine in Kildare Ireland, and later, after her marriage, she was known as Molly Keane. She took the pen name of M. J. Farrell from a pub she used to frequently pass. Previous owner gift inscription to the front free endpaper. The remains of the original promotional band laid in. This is a lovely copy in all respects of what is an exceptionally rare novel to fine in this excellent condition and with the lovely dust jacket.
