London: Cassell (1939). 636pp.
Hichens is perhaps best known as the author of the Green Carnation and his friendship with Oscar Wilde and Alfred Douglas. This lengthy novel opens with a visit by the protagonist to Magnus Hirschfeld's tomb in Nice, and one of the characters is inspired by Hirschfeld's partner and protégé, Li Shiu Tong.
A very good copy in the original jacket, which has light wear small closed tears at edges, signature on endpaper and light browning to endpapers. Uncommon. The American edition was issued the following year.
