Gallows' Orchard. Claire SPENCER.

Gallows' Orchard. New York: Jonathan Cape and Harrison Smith. 1930.

First Edition. Listed as a marginal mystery in Hubin, the novel tells of a girl whose fearlessness antagonizes the Scottish village she lives in, entangling murder, marriage, birth and death into the mix. A book most well known for its striking dustjacket art, a highspot in jacket illustration for the period. This edition is an apparent anomaly being considerably thinner than any other copies encountered. Near Fine in Very Good dustjacket.
