Description

First Edition, Original Binding, Publishers' Original Binding, Signed, With Dustwrapper

First edition. Signed by the author to the title page. In 1912, at Melpham in Suffolk, the tomb of a seventeenth-century missionary was excavated by Professor Stokesay and found to contain a pagan figure of a most un-Christian form. Gerald Middleton was near the scene of this dramatic discovery, and through his life has been linked to this event. Written by Sir Angus Frank Johnstone-Wilson, an English novelist and short story writer who was one of England's first openly gay authors.

Condition
