THE HAVEN: a chronicle

Edition: First US printing

New York: Knopf, 1925. Original black cloth decorated in pink, mauve, and light blue, green & mauve decorated endpapers. pp (8), (256). (Green?) top page edges sunned; else fine and bright. Price-clipped dust jacket has chip to lower inner corners of panels; spine a bit yellowed and lightly foxed, with the red portions faded; VG otherwise. The Australian author's third novel. A rather nice piece of book-making on Knopf's part, the binding design being striking and colourful. Scarce in jacket. A film star Don Juan flees the world to a tropical Pacific island, where he is pursued by five very different sensation-craving women, and where they all become marooned. The novel is "a satire, a study in psychology and a commentary on human endeavor" (jacket).
