Books

Which were the most popular books released in the last weeks ?

The Tree of Heaven

By: May Sinclair

Very good copy in the original gilt-blocked, blind-bordered cloth. Slightest suggestion only of dust-dulling to the panel edges. Spine band somewhat scuffed and dust-dulled. Remains particularly well-preserved overall; tight, bright, clean and strong.
