Repent in Haste by  John P MARQUAND - First Edition - 1945 - from Main Street Fine Books & Manuscripts, ABAA and

Repent in Haste


Condition: See description

Boston: Little, Brown and Company, 1945. Hardcover. 12mo. Tan cloth, pictorial dust jacket. 152pp. Very good/very good. Book itself almost, but not quite, a "Near fine," for it's tight and sharp with just the faintest bit of wear; jacket (not price clipped) bears mild wear and on inside only old tape mends (not yellowing or bleeding through), this overall quite attractive. A charming first edition of this slim World War Two romance set in the West Pacific. Rather uncommon and in exceptional condition.
