GLYDER, John

Lady-in-the-Moon

London: Herbert Jenkins, 1941

8vo, pp. 254, 2pp. publisher's advertisements bound in at rear. Original orange boards, lettered in black to front panel and spine. Illustrated dustwrapper Offsetting to endpapers, a little spotting to top and leading edges of text block, but a near fine copy in a better than very good dustwrapper with just a little light wear to spine ends and top edge.

First edition.

A lovely copy of this comic novel -- a copy which has survived far better than the reputation of its author, who has been comprehensively forgotten. COPAC's listing of his work shows him to have been active between 1928 and 1949, and two films were made from his novels: The Compulsory Husband [1930] and The Compulsory Wife [1937]. Apart from that, nothing: Glyder's name has not troubled the scorers in any of the standard reference works.
