Slight lean to spine, gentle pushing to spine ends, bottom corners bruised, rubbed. Signed and dated by Grand in faded sepia ink to front pastedown in the year of publication: “Sarah Grand/ 1912.”, below ‘Dunecht’ book-label. Offsetting and foxing to feps, else, clean and tight. Very good. A pleasing copy of Grand’s penultimate novel, unusual signed and tantalising in its connection with the Pearsons of Dunecht.
