Rain Before Seven. The Road to Nowhere. Perpetual Fires. Shepherd's Warning. Dead Reckoning. The Evil that Men Do.

London: George Allen & Unwin [and] Hodder & Stoughton, 1916-[1923]. Six volumes, "Rain Before Seven" and "Shepherd's Warning" second impression, the other four first edition, 8vo. The author's copies with his annotations to the fly leaves, "Rain Before Seven" with a portion of a printed wraparound band loosely inserted showing press reviews. Publisher's cloth, four volumes ("The Road to Nowhere", "Shepherd's Warning", "Dead Reckoning" and "The Evil that Men Do") still with their d.w.'s, some loss to edges, particularly to two of the heads of the spines, "Rain Before Seven" with light wear to the top of the cloth spine. A remarkable set of Leadbitter's own copies of all six of his novels. With the exception of "Rain Before Seven", in which he has only noted the date of publication in America, Leadbitter has listed on the fly leaves the dates the novels were begun and finished plus revision and final publication dates, and in two cases noted early drafts under different titles. Leadbitter had a distinguished career as a civil servant, and his novels, written in his 20s and early 30s, have been largely forgotten. Item #34173
