New York: Simon and Schuster, 1960. First Edition. First printing. Octavo (22cm). Cloth-backed boards; dustjacket; tan top-stain; 342pp. Bit of foxing to text block edges and age-mottling to endpapers, else Near Fine.

An attractive copy of this somewhat uncommon late novel by the one-time Parisian expatriate banker, later Marxist economist, and husband of the New Zealand novelist Christina Stead.
