Can it be connected in any way to the recent appearance of some long-forgotten sketches drawn by Lord Mullion's dotty Great-aunt Camilla?

Honeybath addresses himself to these and other teasing problems in this witty, engaging, and surprising tale of aristocratic idiosyncrasies and secrets that only Michael Innes could have conceived. "; 12mo - over 6" - 7" tall
