London: Victor Gollancz Ltd, 1936. First edition of his third book, a novel set in West Africa. Book Society bookplate of Arthur Thomas Dutton on front pastedown. Rub to fore edge of front board otherwise would be near fine; in very good or better typical yellow Gollancz dust jacket with spine and edges toned, tear to top edge front panel affecting "TH" in "THE" and another on rear panel. Both tears show internal evidence of having been backed with tape at some point, though the tape itself is long gone.
