London: Hutchinson, 1943. Publishers original blue cloth with gilt lettering to spine and front cover. Rubbing and bumping to extremities otherwise very good. Dustwrapper: unclipped, chipping to top and base of spine sunning to spine, otherwise very good and now protected in Brodart. White endpapers, front endpaper missing, no inscriptions, light foxing to first few pages. 264pp Pages lightly foxed on closed book. A very good copy of this scarce title. A full length novel printed on thin war economy paper. The life of a mid-Victorian, still actively engaged in the preoccupation of his long existence, which has been to look after No.1. Against a background of seventy years, the self-deception of the selfish and their external excuse for self-advancement has been humorously displayed, and while little Septimus Mandril is emphatically a museum specimen, the like of him, with similar ambitions, similar activities and echoing noble sentiments, continue to complicate and oppose all human progress towards the Brotherhood of Man. Among many sidelights from vanished years is a glimpse of the late John Burns, as a young man, unfolding the red flag among Landseer's lions in Trafalgar Square. A singular departure for this author, who seldom, if ever, written concerning London. A very good copy of this scare title from this author. Eden Phillpotts (1862-1960) . English "novelist, playwright, dramatist". "His more than 250 works depict rural life, environment of west England; wrote "Children of the Mist," 1898.". Cloth. Very Good/Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
