London, Boriswood, 1934. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. Two  volumes, being an inscribed first edition and a proof copy. The first edition is inscribed from the author thus "To Margaret \ from \ Kay \ November 3rd 1934." The Margaret in question is the author's close friend Margaret Goldsmith. Goldsmith was an author herself, and collaborated with Burdekin (Constantine) on Venus in Scorpio in 1940. A lovely association copy. The book, in jacket is uncommon and scarce signed. This is a wonderful copy. Fantasy novel concerning the Devil [Bleiler, p48; Locke, p57]. The proof is very good with a lean and a short tear to the bottom. Some pencil markings to upper wrap. The book is very good with a chip to the head of the spine, and some toning. One puncture to the spine and some bumping and toning to the spine tips. A respectable copy overall. [6864, Hyraxia Books].
