Description: "By the Jaffa Gate of Jerusalem sat Abdul Salam, hawking his wares and gathering information of revolutionary activities. To his ears comes all the current gossip of the bazaars, rumours of unrest and organised rising. In particular he learns the meeting-place of the Silent Ones, a mysterious and elusive society in whose activities Colonel Ormiston of the British Secret Service is particularly interested…"
Red boards with black text on spine. Unclipped jacket (6s. net) in very good condition for its age. Its only flaws are some light rubbing along the edges and a small, closed tear where the front board meets the head of the spine, plus some very light soiling on the rear. Pages are in immaculate condition: crisp, clean, tightly bound and with not a speck of foxing in sight. Gutter lightly tanned.
Copies with jackets are very rare.
