The Mysterious Bookshop

Greene, L. Patrick - The Major-Diamond Buyer

London, John Hamilton, 1935.  First edition. A motley crowd of diamond merchants in South Africa, with the insensitivity of the time.  With a handful of b&w illustrations. Spotting to boards with wear to extremities. Binding loose in spots, endpapers browned with a detached bookseller's sticker. Inscription to half-title. An uncommon book.  $45.00.
