About This Item

New York: Scribner's, 1962. Hardcover. 187p., cast, facsimile letter from C. P. Snow laid-in, very good first edition (Scribner A) in black cloth boards (very nice) and unclipped (but edgeworn & sunned) dust jacket. Millar's adaptation of the eighth novel in Snow's eleven novel cycle titled "Strangers and Brothers". Tensions within academia, reified by a legal review. Sample dialogue from p.161, "Crawford (slowly): 'I do not know that Getliffe convinced me beyond the possibility of doubt that Howard is innocent. He did convince me that it is impossible to say with certainty that he is guilty. I therefore find myself obliged to believe that he should be re-instated by this Court.' Winslow (with satisfaction): 'I make that DUO UTRIUS LATERIS.'
