How it works


This 1980 edition of Plomer\'s Turbot Wolfe, originally published in 1926, includes contributions by seven other literary figures, two of whom, Laurens van der Post and Roy Campbell, were Plomer\'s colleagues on the short-lived literary journal, Voorslag, published in Durban. The dustjacket illustration reproduces a cartoon by the author.

This copy is unmarked and near-perfect; we would have rated it fine were it not for two small dustjacket tears and the remains of a label removed from the front free endpaper.
