Previous owner name in pencil (erasable) on front free endpaper. 239 pgs. Attractive bright dustjacket has tiny chips at spine corners and edges. Enclosed in new archival quality removable mylar cover. Poet Alfred Noyes has written a deliciously light-hearted story, a blending adventure, sly satire, comedy and beauty. How Basil, an ever-so-proper young ecclesiastic, lost his clothes and battled his way back to them through a terrifying series of mental hazards, is the fable of the book. How he also lost the swaddling clothes that encased his soul, and didn't regain them, is its theme--a theme on which Alfred Noyes plays with altogether charming philosophical and farcical variations. 017919
