Power Without Glory A Novel in Three Parts


1950. No owner inscriptions. This is the second edition published in October 1950, 2 months after the first edition. Near fine. The red binding has no titles on it, presumably because of the infamous reputation of the book. Into the front of book is tipped-in a facsimile handwritten explanatory of 5 pages which "tells all" e.g. which real-life character each of the fictional characters actually represents! Contains a fascinating Author's Note at rear of the book, dated April, 1950, East Malvern. Clean, tight & bright binding. Not foxed; NOT ex-lib; The book that rocked Melbourne throughout the 1950s and still continues to carry weight in many quarters.
