To Love and Be Wise

London: Peter Davies, 1953. Early Edition. Item #7394

"Tey opened up the possibility of unconventional secrets. Homosexual desire, cross-dressing, sexual perversion – they were all hinted at, glimpsed in the shadows as a door closed or a curtain twitched. Tey was never vulgar nor titillating.... Nevertheless, her world revealed a different set of psychological motivations." - Val McDermid in "The brillliant unconventional crime novels of Josephine Tey"(The Telegraph, July 2015)

Second edition copy printed in 1953. Orignal first issue DJ with "9s 6d" price on lower front flap. A nice copy of this early detective novel from the famed Scottish author. A few minor chips to DJ edges.

Price: $50.00
