The Mysterious Bookshop

Durant, Theo - The Marble Forest

London, Allan Wingate, 1951.  First UK edition. A marble forest of tombstones is the grim scene of Rod Barratt, who is seeking his young daughter, who has been kidnapped and buried alive in a coffin and her father is racing against time to rescue her. There's no way to find her except open up graves, and as they reveal their secrets, scandals come back to life. Spine very slightly cocked, browning to endpapers. Previous owner's inscription to front free endpaper. DJ shows slight staining with chipping to spine ends and one small open tear to lower front corner. $15.00.
