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.

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
