Golding, Louis. Luigi of Catanzaro.

London: E. Archer, 1926.

Signed Limited Edition (#95 of 100 copies). Signed by the Author. Inscribed on half titled to Emanuel Litvinoff, poet of outstanding ability, who amongst other splendid achievements, did a stint as a ghost writer for Golding after World War 2. 4to. buff paper wraps, some slight soiling and rubbing here and there, a little frayed around the edges, with a rubbed scrawl to the top margin of the upper wrap, but strong. Internally clean. It has some status as Queen’s Quorum 73, and also for being one of the more obscure and difficult titles to be added to that important list, dealing as it does with the canonisation of a man who is known to be a Jew, the discussion as to his suitability being carried out in Heaven by Christian notables like Francis of Assisi and Thomas Aquinas. Very scarce, kind of awesome.
