Item #31042 TALES OF EAST AND WEST. Sax Rohmer, Arthur S. Ward.


London, Toronto, Melbourne and Sydney: Cassell and Company, Ltd., 1932. Octavo, pp. [1-4] 5 [6-8] 9-287 [288], original orange cloth, front ruled in blind, spine stamped in black. First edition. Collects ten stories. Includes a Paul Harley story and two with Sir Denis Nayland Smith. Contents differ from the U. S. edition published in 1933. Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 1413 (which references the U.S. editon, this edition not seen by Bleiler). Bleiler (1978), p. 170. Reginald 12400. Day, p. 17. Foxing to edges and to early and late leaves, a nearly fine copy in a very good dust jacket with the lower front flap clipped, mild losses at corner tips, upper edges, and small chips to lower left corner, base of spine panel and lower rear panel. Most of the Cassell Rohmer titles from this period we have examined show a 7/6 price on the spine, this does not and it is likely an export issue. Still a decent and attractive example of the scarce dust jacket. (31042). Item #31042
