London, Herbert Jenkins, 1934.
First edition. 8vo. Original cloth. Dust-jacket, correctly priced 7/6.
A lovely first edition of this uncommon tale of Anglo-Indian love. The jacket artwork is by the renowned illustrator Charles Robinson, brother to W. Heath, and must number among his last commissions (as he died in 1937).
