Madame Solario, Anonymous
1 Madame Solario
Anonymous
New York Viking Press 1956 First Hardcover Near Fine Very Good+ Jacket 
First Edition (First Published in August, 1956) in clean unclipped dust jacket. Clean unfaded black and lime green cloth boards with black lettering no cover and spine. No bumping or wear. Binding is tight and square, hinges are sound - no cracking. Pages and edges are clean, with black top-stained upper page edges. Clean endpapers - no names, writing or marks. 374 pages. Dust jacket is clean, has a few tiny edge nicks, short closed edge tears, not price clipped. Jacket design by Irv Docktor. Enclosed in new archival quality removable mylar cover. At a fashionable hotel on Lake Como in 1906, the enchanting Madame Solario, a woman of worldly charm and mystery, is receiving the gallant attentions of the men and the envy of the women when her brother unexpectedly appears on the scene. Thrown together by a scandal in their past, they find themselves inescapably enmeshed. The author of this distinguished and fairly scarce novel has glowingly recaptured the scene of an age when life had graces now lost; the dress, the attitudes, the manners of European aristocracy in those years live in these pages as if the book had been written at that time. 026741
