"LORD, IF YOU ARE WITH ME STILL DO NOT STAY… DO NOT SUFFER"
HALL, Radclyffe. The Master of the House. London: Jonathan Cape, 1932. Royal octavo, original half vellum, top edge gilt, uncut, original glassine, original slipcase. $450.
Signed limited first edition of the first novel published by Radclyffe Hall after her groundbreaking work The Well of Loneliness, number 114 of only 172 copies signed by her.
Perhaps in reaction to the shocked response to The Well of Loneliness, the devoutly Catholic Hall followed it with this explicitly religious work set in the south of France.
About-fine copy in a worn and toned slipcase.
