The Revenge for Love.
London, Cassell, 1937
A very good copy of one of Lewis's greatest works, written during 1934-35, the final publication of The Revenge for Love was constantly delayed owing to Cassell's demands that potentially libellous passages should be removed. Lewis reluctantly agreed, remarking in November 1936 that 'this book that is thus about to be contemptuously flung upon the market is probably the best complete work of fiction I have written...'
First edition, first impression; 8vo; usual slight toning to text-block; publisher's russet cloth, a very good copy, dark blue dust-jacket printed in black, faded at spine and top edge, slight wear to head of spine, neat repairs to inside, in effect a very good copy.
