The Meeting Place and Other Stories.
London: Faber & Faber Limited, 1929 - Octavo. Original brown boards, gilt lettering and rules to spine, lettering in blind to front board. With the dust jacket. School prize label with gift inscription to front free endpaper, light bumping to spine ends, very slight nicks and staining to toned spine of jacket, an excellent copy, scarce in jacket. First edition, first impression. This collection of short stories includes "The Man who Hated Flies", a parable about a perfect insecticide which precipitates an eco-catastrophe, an example of an early story on an ecological theme. As the Encyclopaedia of Science Fiction writes, Beresford is an author "ripe for rediscovery". [Attributes: First Edition]
