Edition: First printing
New York: Robert McBride, 1947. Dark blue cloth stamped in red. Small, not very noticable damp spots to covers; endpapers and page edges yellowed; else a fine copy, no owner names. Thin dust jacket is rubbed to the folds; large chip at head of spine (no lettering lost); other chips, creased tears; just fair, but all lettering present. An historical novel "told against the warm, tropical setting of Saint Dominque at the time when that lush island of the Caribbean Sea was one of France's most highly- prized colonies, this is the bold story of the rakehell young English planter, Amler Ballard, and his dusky slave-mistress Jade. Its backdrop [is] the Hatian Rebellion of 1791..." - dust jacket.
