Product description

Used, fair condition, hard cover with dust jacket, fourth impression 1951.
"The corruption and murder of innocence. The Youth whose Fate it was to know the full terror of the world in a single bitter season." -- Gore Vidal. Peters' second novel focuses on the tumultuous adolescence of Matthew Cameron. As Gore Vidal noted, the first third of this book lays out the many betrayals experienced by young Matthew. The middle third lays out the story of Matthew's relationship with Michel, and the final third follows the rapid disintegration of Matthew's world.
The dust jacket has creasing to the top edge and some small tears to the top and bottom ends of the spine and bottom corners. There is some foxing, particularly to the spine. The hard cover of blue boards shows slight bumping to the top and bottom of the spine and to the corners. There is foxing to the edges of the pages. The pages 29/30 and 31/32 have been torn and then fixed with sellotape, not very well but still readable. There is also a small tear in the next page 33, but again still readable. The binding is sound and the pages are all unmarked.
