    Description

    Isobel Stone. Two Novels Published by Bruce Humphries, including: Crossroads of Night: A Novel of Ancient Egypt. Boston: Bruce Humphries, Inc. Publishers, [1938]. Octavo. 300 pages. Publisher's cream covers with the spine lettered in black. Blue and white illustrated dust jacket. Top edge stained black. Some rubbing to the covers, some discoloration to the spine, minor rubbing to the jacket, some tiny closed tears to the head and foot of the jacket spine, some foxing to the inner jacket flaps and the endpapers, small pencil notation of the front free endpaper. Altogether a very good copy. Isobel Stone's novel knowledgeably recreates the vivid and stunning ancient Egyptian civilization to create the prefect setting for this work about a girl in royal captivity searching for happiness and freedom. [and:] The City of a Hundred Gates. Boston: Bruce Humphries, Inc., Publishers, [1942]. Octavo. 203 pages. Publisher's red cloth covers with the front cover blind-stamped with a single rule and the spine lettered in gilt. Illustrated dust jacket. Top edge stained red. Rubbing to the covers and jacket, some small closed tears to the edges of the jacket, some chipping to the head and foot of the jacket spine, jacket spine sunned. Altogether a very good copy. Isobel Stone's intensive study of Egyptology shines through in this suspenseful work centered upon ancient Egypt and the concept of time. As the author states the ancient Egyptian belief on the jacket flap, time is "a locality to be visited in after years, or centuries - if the mind is powerful enough."

    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.
