Faint sunning to edges of green boards, light soil to pale yellow page edges, a few page edges have tiny chips. Price clipped dust wrapper has publisher's price sticker on bottom front flap, very light edgewear. ; The story of a pirvate Swiss banking house in Paris during the interwar period. This "forgotten" Australian author recommended by Jonathan Franzen.; This oversized book will not fit safely in the Int'l. Priority mail envelope. "This is a vast panoramic novel that explores the intrigues, swindles, and manipulations of international finance, exposing themes that are as relevant today as when first published in 1939." 'Combined with her Hogarthian humor, brilliant vocabulary, high-keyed imagination, the result is one of the most savage satires on 'the principle of money' since Balzac' - "Time".
