Octavo, pp. [1-6] 7 [8-10] 11-286 [287-288: blank] [note: last leaf is a blank], original green and orange mottled cloth, spine panel stamped in gold, publisher's device blind stamped on rear panel, bottom edges rough-trimmed. First edition. The author's first collection of short fiction, gathering twenty-five short stories. Bates' stories appeared frequently in Edward J. O'Brien's annual anthology series, BEST BRITISH SHORT STORIES. The prolific Bates was primarily a writer of short stories and in this field he was highly regarded by David Garnett and Graham Greene, among others. His style has been traced to the influence of Conrad (and thus of Henry James) and Stephen Crane, but his subject matter is definitely British, concentrating on the lives and tragedies of rural workers, occasionally touching on the theme of madness.

Faint offsetting on pages 32-33 from an old clipping once laid-in, else a fine copy. (#128183). N° de réf. du libraire 128183
