Weymouth Sands

Product description


Weymouth Sands

by John Cowper Powys

London
Macdonald & Co (Publishers) Ltd
1963
567pp

First unexpurgated British edition of John Cowper Powys' novel published nearly 30 years earlier as Jobber Skald. As the Prefatory Note makes clear, Powys' British publishers - wary of possible legal action following a libel suit over the author's previous novel A Glastonbury Romance - excised any references to the Dorset setting, thus removing a major part of the novel's atmosphere.
This hardback edition published in 1963 is in good condition. Dust jacket with a small tear on the top near the spine and creasing on the top left corner of the back cover. Red cloth hard covers with author's name in gold lettering on the front. Previous owner's name and date written on the 1st page.
