The Flaming Terrapin


Published: Jonathan Cape, [1924]

Stock code: 2177

Price: £76.00

THE AUTHOR'S FIRST WORK IN VARIANT BINDING. With the engraved armorial bookplate of Richard Oskatel Latham on front paste-down, and a magazine clipping of the author's poem 'The Serf' loosely inserted. Epic poem by the South African catholic port and translator. This binding differs from the usual orange paper boards and cloth backstip; we have not seen this variant before.
