Dealer Notes
No. 42 in Florin Books, one of Cape’s cheap interwar reprint libraries, comprising modern fiction sold at 2s. By the 1930s, Cape had overcome its meekness about The Well of Loneliness, and was happy to leverage its commercial value again: the title page highlights Hall’s authorship of the banned novel, while the front flap notes that Adam’s Breed won the Femina Vie Heureuse Prize in 1926 and was a title ‘which before the appearance of The Well of Loneliness showed Miss Hall to be an author of power and sympathy’. Uncommon in dust jacket.
