Inscribed on front free endpaper: "For George Atkins - / old friend - / as a poor return for the / best apples I've met in / an age! / John Erskine / January, 1932 - ". "The car was moving fast but not too fast. You couldn't blame the driver. A tire exploded - . Before Ormer saw his friends again he stood before a Gate and heard the amazing dictum that scared him back to life: neither right nor wrong counts, but only their completion. The man alone is damned who fails to fulfil his intentions. But - cheating his partner. Seducing a girl. These were among the things that Ormer had begun. Now with his own salvation at stake he must return to complete them. In the twenty years that had passed, the partner had become the president of a powerful bank, the girl had become the wife of his faithful friend. And he knew he must return to face the Figure at the Gate. Most men and women carry about with them regrets vague or clearly articulated for the things they have not done. As we grow older we regret even the prudence which kept us from mistakes. Even from mistakes, we begin to feel, we might have learned more fully to live. This common experience is dramatized (here). Along with the regret for neglected opportunities to live goes usually a wish that we might return to past hours and complete what we left unfinished. Here is the story of a man who tried to make such a repetition of his life." Light toning to margins of pages; a few tiny foxing marks on preliminary pages, on rear pastesdown and on edges of text block; light edge wear/rubbing; wrinkling at top/bottom of spine; light corner bumps and two small bumps at bottom edge of front board; light browning to fore-edge and bottom of text block. Dust jacket has edge wear with small chips, tears and creases - tears have old tape repairs on inside surface; browning on spine; two small ink scribbles and small water stain on front panel; light soiling and rubbing; now protected in a mylar sleeve.
