(4),v-viii,1-235,(1). 8vo, brown cloth with gilt lettering to spine."Not everything in a writer's work can hope to survive the passage of time or the vagaries of literary fashion.

He has often had a preference for the first person singular as a device which puts the writer into direct communication with the reader, in the manner of a storyteller and his audience in an Oriental bazaar." - from the dustjacket., Contents: I.
