First Edition. Snell dustjacket art. Translated by Arthur J. Ashton. "Count Hunther von Tarniff maries Beate. He wants her to bide in his castle - like a thoroughbred Arabian breeder in a stable. As for himself, Gunther goes for excitement to a glamorous girl of the peasantry, and later becomes involved with Mareile, a beautiful singer".
