Love By Accident
London: Victor Gollancz Ltd, 1929. First edition. Bound in rust / orange cloth, and in its original dust jacket. 288 pp. 190 x 130 mm (7½ x 5 inches). Louis Marlow was the pseudonym for Louis Umfreville Wilkinson, a British author, lecturer and biographer.
At the time, The Observer's reviewer thought this story, turning on the protagonist's self-imposed celibacy, was an inadequate vehicle for the book's more serious injunctions against warmongers and literary censorship.
Condition: The book cloth is looking a little faded. The dust jacket is age-toned, and has some very minor chipping to top and bottom of spine. Internally, the book has virtually no foxing. A very good copy.
