Spine a bit creased, slightly slanted, corners bumped, slight edge wear, a little browning to page edges. A bright, attractive Dell mapback, Dell # 281.

"Anthony Adverse" was originally published in 1933, but was split into three self-contained paperbacks of which this is the first, followed by "Anthony Adverse in Africa" and America.
"This book follows events in the life of Anthony Adverse from his birth, through childhood and adolescence into young manhood and the tender passion of his first love. This is the love with which he is to compare all others throughout his tempestuous life. Sharing these moments with him is Angela, slim, brown-eyed, darkly beautiful, 'the little shepherdess.' Anthony's early life revolves around events at the Casa da Bonnyfeather, in Livorno, Italy, nucleus of the prosperous shipping business of John Bonnyfeather. It is here that his character is forged to the brilliant hardness that carries him successfully through subsequent adventures in distant lands."; 16mo - over 5¾" - 6¾" tall

"Disa Odell had never been to Florida before. Why, then, did lonely Mound Key, the private island of the theatrical Loring family, seem so familiar - and so threatening? Why had her mother Johanna expressed reluctance about Disa's plan to visit Villa Vespero, the Lorings' 'House of the Evening Star,' an Italian-Renaissance-like structure with stately columned entrances? After all, Celia Loring, who operated an acting school on the estate was Johanna Odell's best friend. And Ross Mitchell, Disa's lean, dark-haired fiancé, was employed at the school. Now Ross's letters are vague, suggesting they postpone the wedding until 'certain problems' at Villa Vespero were resolved. Uneasy about her impending confrontation with Ross, Disa was further unnerved when she narrowly avoided a head-on collision while driving to Mound Key. Arriving at the villa, she found the house shadowy and silent. But someone was there to greet her - an unkempt man holding a hatchet whose blade gleamed faintly in the last light of the dying day."; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall

She was to accompany then and some friends and a young, handsome fellow employee, Ron Calvert, to the Cornish coast of England and act as nurse-companion to Cleo, a semi-invalid. What she had not been told was the purpose of the trip - to look for a treasure supposedly buried during World War II by the Nazis. . . Her first premonition of danger came when she spied the craggy, desolate coast. The wind-swept isolation reminded her of a recurring nightmare she had had from childhood. And almost immediately fantasy invaded reality when the body of a man was discovered awash in the sea. At the grisly sight Lesley's mounting hysteria was calmed only by the steadying arm of Ron Calvert. The ensuing treasure hunt was carried out against a background of murder, suspicion, greed, and a ravaging gale that relentlessly tormented the coast."; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall
