Greene's second novel, after "The Man Within" (1929) ; both were preceded by a small volume of poems published in 1925. The U. S. Edition of the volume in this lot was only 1000 copies, without any subsequent printings, as initial sales were poor and Greene later decided to dismiss the work as a bad potboiler and refused to permit later editions. Copied from the dj this blurb, " A Brilliant Psychological Melodrama of the Senses by the Young Cousin of Robert Louis Stevenson Who Fulfills in This Book the Promise of That Reamrkable First Novel, the MAN WITHIN" .
