2 Paton, Alan. TOO LATE THE PHALAROPE.
Toronto / London Clarke, Irwin / Jonathan Cape 1953 First Canadian Edition. Very Good Very Good- Val Biro, dust jacket art. 
253 pp, small 8vo (7 5/8" H). The first Canadian edition, consisting of a first edition Jonathan Cape book with a Clarke, Irwin dust jacket, priced at $2.10. "Alan Paton's second novel is as powerful as his first. Indeed it surpasses 'Cry, the Beloved Country' in both the effectiveness of its technique and the emotional intensity of its theme. The setting is again South Africa, but the tragedy this time is of a white man who for complicated reasons, some of them not unconnected with his childhood and training, succumbs to the very temptations he might have been thought strong enough to resist. His downfall is recorded by his father's sister who watched the train of events, half foreseeing the disaster yet unable to prevent it, and now in anguish blames herself. Though the story could have had no other setting than South Africa, its application is universal, and certainly its poignancy does not depend on its geographical situation." Minor edge wear, minor wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, minor soiling on top of text block. Dust jacket has light edge wear/wrinkling, a few very small edge tears, light edge browning, very light soiling/rubbing on rear panel. 
Price: 10.00 USD
