New York: D. Appleton and Company. Near Fine in Near Fine dj. 1928. American Edition. Hardcover Second Printing. NOISBN . [very nice clean copy, only minimal handling wear to book; jacket has a teensy bit of paper loss at a couple of top corners, minor dog-earing at top of spine]. "This is the love-romance of John Allenby, an amusing young English architect, and a very charming French girl. Allenby one finds is endowed with great connections, but very little of this world's goods." According to a contemporary newspaper item, "Philip Hughes" was a pseudonym, the author was "in real life [being] chairman of an English concern well known in the art world." (Thankfully, the clever cataloguers at the British Library figured out his real name -- Hugh Phillips. This was his first published novel, and the unimaginative nom de plume notwithstanding, he went on to write at least eight more under the same name. The "English concern" referred to in the news item may well have been the auction house Phillips, founded in London by Harry Phillips in 1796 and still in business today.) . (Inventory #: 19338)
