The Shaft in the Sky. John Temple Jr GRAVES.

The Shaft in the Sky. New York: George H. Doran Co., (1923).

First Edition. "This is the story of Washington with its background of social intrigue and feminine influence... the picture of a city in which Congress and Capitol Hill are subordinate to the social dowager and her glittering dinner table, a city above whose fashionable excesses the Washington Monument, a slender glittering shaft in the sky, points eternal verities". Almost Near Fine but for small sticker price abrasion at front endpaper and title page, in rather edge chipped and spine soiled example of the scarce dustjacket.

Price: $45.00
