New York: Harcourt, Brace and Company, 1937. Hardcover. xiv, 211p., very good first US edition in cloth boards and dust jacket. Top edge of textblock is tinted red, this area very faintly sprinkled, volume else near-fine; the unclipped dj has minor edgewear and toning, some handling grime along front flap-fold, faint dampstain along spine panel and top margin, and back panel bears a 2x3 inch area of smudged offset color. A respectable copy. Grier A, C*** Young 180.

A major contribution to the history of gay and lesbian literature. The gothic roman à clef was slightly edited from the original UK edition by Eliot for the US publication and was one the earliest novels to depict explicit gay and lesbian sex.
