Pied Piper of Lovers
Blue boards with the barest hint of rubbing to edges; no dustjacket, spine incorrectly lettered Pied Pipers of Lovers, bookseller's price on front free endpaper, slight spotting to fore and top-edges, otherwise a clean, solid, well-preserved copy of Lawrence's exceedingly scarce first novel.
London: Cassell & Company, 1935. First edition of Lawrence's first novel. Very much an apprentice effort, highly autobiographical in character, Durrell's novel sank largely without trace. As with so many unsold titles, the majority of copies were destroyed during the Blitz. (Item ID: 1342)
