Original pale green cloth, lettered and decorated (with twigs and blossom) in dark green and white on front board, and spine. Spine darkened and scuffed on ends, otherwise good. Inscription on front free endpaper reads (rather oddly): "Mamie's dedication to Beresford". The novel was reviewed in The Spectator: "[Magda Stacpoole's] engage- ment to, and ultimate rescue from, a deliriously decadent lover is described with an intoxicating exuberance of polysyllabic preciosity."
