Stated Thornton Butterworth “cheap edition 1928”, but part of the remaindered stock bought up by Eyre and Spottiswoode, with the Abbey designed dust jacket probably dating from the late 1930s. The book is reasonably firmly bound in yellow cloth lettered in black to the spine, the extremities are slightly bumped and rubbed. The text block is toned and slightly foxed with a long gift inscription to the front endpaper. The dust jacket is grubby and slightly faded to the spine, with minor chips and closed tears to the edges. A strange tale of a convict on the run with a child, convinced that he is pursued by a were-wolf, translated from the French novel, Le Loup Garou.
