        DEVIL'S TOR

      G. P. Putnam's Sons [1932], London - Octavo, pp. [1-8] [1] 2-487 [488: printer's imprint], original black cloth, spine panel stamped in gold. The fifth and final novel published during Lindsay's lifetime. Though boring, the work has its memorable pages, even chapters according to Colin Wilson who spent two years getting through it. E. H. Visiak stated that he initially believed that the book was almost unreadable, but upon rereading it - slowly - he found it fascinating and was so impressed that he wrote a fifty page critique of the novel. Brian Stableford says the novel is "marvelously atmospheric and admirably conscientious in its design of a hypothetical mythology and the metaphysics to go with it." E. F. Bleiler considers DEVIL'S TOR to be Lindsay's "magnum opus." Barron (ed), Fantasy Literature 3-218. Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 1022. Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 140. Schlobin, The Literature of Fantasy 664. Survey of Modern Fantasy Literature I, pp. 391-95. Tymn (ed), Fantasy Literature, pp. 127-28. Bleiler (1978), p. 124. Reginald 09071. Foxing to preliminary leaves, edges dusty, corners gently bumped, light insect tracking to edges of front and rear covers, overall a generally very good copy.

The film starred Joan Crawford as a prostitute named Sadie who is temporarily stranded on a Pacific island and Walter Huston as a missionary who is torn between his desire to reform Sadie and his physical attraction to her. The story resolves in a manner faithful to Maugham's story with the missionary's suicide and Sadie's unapologetic return to her depraved lifestyle.

        Photo Album - Shanghai Incident

      Shanghai, 1932. China Fleet Flagship HMS Suffolk - Shanghai - Hong Kong - January 28 Incident 1930-1932 Shangahi, Hong Kong, 1930-1934. Album of original photographs taken by a British Army soldier who went to Shanghai and Hong Kong with 1st Battalion, the Lincolnshire Regiment, on the China Station flagship HMS Suffolk, and who saw action in the Shanghai January 28 Incident (Shanghai War of 1932). Contains 162 black and white photographs mounted with corners onto 20 black cardstock leaves. Oblong 8vo. string-tied album measuring 26 x 18,5 cm. Photographs vary in size, the smallest measuring approximately 7x 5 cm; the largest measuring approximately 10 x 15 cm. Indication of moisture to boards, otherwise photographs are in Very Good Condition. A well rounded album of photographs spanning at least two years of China Station fleet flagship HMS Suffolk's second voyage to the Far East, mainly featuring views of Hong Kong, then a British Crown Colony, and Shanghai where the photographer served in the Shanghai War of 1932. Some views may also have been taken in Wei Hai Wei (then a leased territory under British rule), and in Gibraltar just before being commissioned to China. A series of 8 sun-toned photographs of the Suez Canal port authority, Port Said monument to Ferdinand de Lesseps, so forth. In Shanghai the soldier is positioned behind a sandbag barrier on a city street, with guns ready for firing as the Sino-Japanese dispute unfolds. A memorialized photograph celebrates the HMS Suffolk leaving Shanghai for Hong Kong 1 October 1932, after a lengthy patrol to Shanghai and the Yangtze delta. . [On 28 January 1932, Japanese forces violated the neutrality of the Shanghai International Settlement by launching attacks on Chinese forces from within their sectors. The Municipal Council requested assistance from the treaty powers and activated the Shanghai Volunteer Corps, a force of approximately 3,000 men. On 2 February 1932, the Perth Daily News reported the HMS Suffolk's arrival and Shanghai's tenuous state, "Shanghai has never seen a bigger mobilization of volunteer forces in her troubled history... HMS Suffolk arrived yesterday..." An evacuation of residents ensued, and two of HMS Suffolk's men who were guarding the Hongkew Wharf died.] Photographs are also taken of the soldiers' pristine accommodation - the Hankow barracks at Shamshuipo (Sham Shui Po), the camp in Kowloon which would later be used by the Japanese invaders as a prisoner camp in WWII. Other war related images include firing practice and other drills, men carving out a trench, and tent camps (possibly in Gibraltar). The soldier also pays a visit to the graves of fallen soldiers and Royal marines at the Hong Kong cemetery. Showing indigenous life and industry, Chinese men are busy chiselling large stones into pebbles with small hand hammers presumably making macadam for road construction. Two unique methods of conveyance are shown as Chinese men are hard at work. Children entertain themselves at a large riverside lumber yard, and a woman carries two baskets on a cross-shoulder pole - one containing her infant, the other with harvested produce. Further views include the Great Wall, harbour views and junks, and the soldier enjoying a rickshaw tour through Shanghai. The soldier's name is unknown, though a professional post-voyage portrait taken by Nainby, the photographer's name stamped to bottom right corner, suggests that he lived in or near Alford Town, Lincolnshire. In 1930, the Lincolnshire Regiment's 1st Battalion left England for Gibraltar on their first posting of an overseas tour. The 1st Lincolns left Shanghai for the more peaceful posting of Hong Kong in September 1932. They stayed there for 3 years and then moved to India. They were there when the Second World War broke out. . Very Good.
