Some nicks and rubbing along the edges with some further small loss to the upper rear edge. Toning to the spine, edges and folds. The wrapper still presents very well despite its faults, in the removable Brodart archival cover. The book has the cut signature of the author affixed to the title page. A very scarce title in the original wrapper. Violet Tweedale was a prolific writer of short stories, published as anthologies, and novels, often with a romantic or supernatural theme.
