DescriptionSax Rohmer. Two First Editions, including: Sand and Satin; Sinister Madonna. London: Herbert Jenkins [1955-1956].
First hardcover editions. Two twelvemo volumes.
Red cloth with black spine titles. Dust jackets. Overall near fine to fine. The Sand and Satin jacket is very good with creases, some wear, and paper loss. Fu Manchu-creator Sax Rohmer (1883-1959) wrote these two "Sumuru" novels late in life. According to the sensational blurb on the 1955 Sand and Satin dust jacket, these tales feature "the exquisite, amoral Sumuru, the beauty of whose body drives men to commit the crimes of vice and violence on which her nature feeds." Her opponent: none other than the intrepid Inspector Gilligan! From the Robert and Diane Yaspan Collection.

As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
