Death of a Harlot
William Godwin, Inc New York [1935] - First Edition. H. R. dustjacket art. Early Hubin listed mystery novel to concern prostitution and pimping. "Can a prostitute reform is a question raised in this extraordinary novel. Vivid and thrilling, with every element of suspense and passion, this intriguing novel is not a cheap attempt at sensationalism but a real contribution to a better understanding of that age-old problem - prostitution." Characters in the novel include: "Pye, a minister's son who becomes a procurer. Clarice, a brilliant, over-sexed girl who becomes a prostitute by inclination. Laura, the beautiful but not overly-bright daughter of a day laborer who becomes a prostitute from economic necessity. Raymond, an idealistic young man who thinks prostitution is purely an economic problem and who devotes his life to saving a girl he thinks he has ruined". Fabulously risqué title published by the leader of such novels from this period. Very scarce. Almost Near Fine in a Very Good or Near Fine dustjacket with only few minor signs of wear.
