Black & white and 16 full page colour illustrations. ; Preface by Douglas Cleverdon. Heritage Club "Sandglass" laid in. The lovely Zuleika Dobson is a professional magician and the granddaughter of the Warden of Judas College, Oxford. (Based on Merton College, Oxford, Beerbohm's alma mater). All of the student body falls victim to her charms... This is one of crime novelist Val McDermid's top 10 Oxford novels. 'A mad fantasy, this is a satire on the sheltered world of Oxford colleges a century ago. Zuleika, granddaughter of the warden of Judas College, is a conjuror whose charms bewitch all the men who come into contact with her. Rejection drives them to mass suicide and Zuleika sets her sights on Cambridge. Beerbohm's a class act whose wit makes this still worth a read.'; ' this curiosity is still great fun to read. Just donít go looking for a moral.'-This title reviewed and recommended by Scott the owner of the "Stuck in a Book" blog. This will not fit safely in an International Priority Mail envelope.
