Description

    Talbot Mundy. The Devil's Guard. Philadelphia: The Oriental Club, [December 1945].

    First Oriental Club edition. Octavo. viii, 291 pages.

    Publisher's black cloth covers with the front cover lettered and illustrated in gilt. Spine lettered in gilt. Illustrated dust jacket. Inscribed by Milton F. Wells, author of the introduction, on the front free endpaper. Very minor rubbing to the covers, slight rubbing to the jacket, one tiny closed tear to the front top edge of the jacket. Altogether a very good copy.

    Talbot Mundy (April 23, 1879 - August 5, 1940) also wrote under the pen name Walter Galt. The Oriental Club of Philadelphia was founded in 1888 to promote studies focused upon the Far East. Milton F. Wells was a member of this group, and this work was its first venture into publication, with the aid of The Bobs-Merrill Company which first published this work in 1926.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
