How it works


This is a classic collection of short stories and Pauline Smith's highspot. Next to Olive Schreiner, Smith was South Africa's most important writer of English Literature in the early part of the twentieth century. The first edition is not common and the dust wrapper is decidedly scarce. The introduction is by Arnold Bennett who Smith wrote about in a published book: "A.B. A Minor Marginal Note". This is a clean unmarked copy although the ffep. has moderate offsetting. The rear cloth has some bubbling which seems to be a binding fault as there is no evidence of damp. The dw. is complete and not price-clipped. It has some edge wear and age toning with a darkened spine.
