A Devil in Downing Street. London, Herbert Jenkins Ltd, 1937.
£1,450
A stunning first edition of the very scarce seventh novel by this elusive author, centred around the then topical political hot potato of Indian Independence but with a title that feels worryingly prescient given the current political climate, and the potential incumbents of the famous street's Number 10... All of Ladline's early novels are seemingly scarce, but this one particularly so. Enhanced still further by the inscription from the author, 'To Anna from Robert Ladline 1937'.
