ABRAHAMS, PETER
The Path of Thunder
London, Faber and Faber, 1952. Hardcover. pp. 262.Small 8vo,,Bound in orange cloth with gilt lettering to spine,From the dust jacket flap: 'Peter Abrahams made history in the development of the English novel. A South African negro, born (1919) in the slums of Johannesburg, he uses the English language 'like an angel''. This title was actually written in 1946 and first published by Harper's, in the U. S. in 1948. Either the political exigencies of the time, or the delicacy of the subject-matter, inhibited its publication in Britain until 1952. The author went on to greater international success with 'A Wreath for Udomo' (1956). Throughout the greater part of his creative life, most of his work was produced in exile. His last novel was 'The View from Coyaba' (1985). The dust jacket is not price-clipped. It has a thumbnail-sized piece missing from the base of the spine, the absence of which has caused the foot of the spine of the book to become sunned, or faded. There is a smaller piece of the jacket missing from the top of the spine. There are several closed tears, and some light soiling and creasing. Overall, the jacket is still in good condition. The book has a bit of shelf wear, and some slight soiling, but is otherwise clean and tight internally. It is in very good condition. .

ADAMS, RICHARD
The Girl in a Swing
London, Allen Lane, 1980. 1st edition. Hardcover. pp. 397.8vo,,,When first published, the central female character in this book was named Kathe Geutner. Due to protests from the 'real' Kathe Geutner, the name was changed to Karin Forster in all subsequent printings, and a new ISBN was obtained. The first British and Canadian editions were published by Allen Lane, the only difference being that the price on the dust jacket of the Canadian edition is in dollars. Our offering is the first British edition (no $ price) with the second state name of Karin Forster. Both the book and the dust jacket show very slight shelf wear; else both are in near fine condition. ISBN 0713914076.
