First Edition. C. Hale dustjacket art. "A young rector soothes the petty irritations of a small village. Against this background of startling insight is worked out the drama of Gillian and Sir Giles. We see Gillian's affection for him warring with her love for Timothy". This copy nicely inscribed and signed by Watney at front endpaper. Almost Near Fine in Very Good dustjacket, some shallow loss at spine ends.
