Paris: Edward W. Titus, 1931.
First signed limited subscriber’s edition of Coyle’s short novella. Octavo, original boards. One of five hundred twenty-five numbered copies signed by the author, this is number 506. Very good in the scarce original glassine which shows chipping and wear.
Northern Irish novelist Kathleen Coyle published 19 novels and two autobiographies throughout her lifetime. In 1926, Coyle moved to Paris where she became and acquaintance of James Joyce and Nora Barnacle and produced a steady number of novels, which she stated were written to earn money rather than for literary merit. Coyle left Europe in 1937 for New Hampshire with her daughter Michele, an artist, where she joined the MacDowell Colony.
