THE EVIL EYE. London: William Heinemann, 1903. Octavo, pp. [1-4] 1-325 [326-328: blank], original decorated orange cloth, front, spine and rear panels stamped in black and red. First edition. "Ambitious novel about an English family in Malta, where it comes in contact with Valda Luigi who unconsciously exerts an 'uncanny fatal influence' (in the words of a contemporary review, which also praised the book's workmanship, particularly in the fashioning of its child character Hattie). The author wrote several novels in the Edwardian period." - Robert Eldridge. Scattered foxing to the pulpy text paper, vertical crease to title page, new endpapers, but with a surprisingly clean exterior for such light-colored cloth; overall about good -- and scarce. (#148138).
