And Gifts Misspent

by H. A. Lindsay

Robert Hale, 1964 [First Edition], hardcover, dust-jacket

Very Good Condition, a little edge and shelf wear, a little rubbing and bumping to edges and corners, previous owners stamp on front end-paper, slight lean, price-clipped dust-jacket shows some edge and shelf wear, some rubbing, chipping, creasing and small tears with small parts missing at top and bottom of spine, some repairs (see photographs)

"Australia is once again the scene of a novel by H. A. Lindsay and this story concerns George Sebastian, endowed with a great gift which he often prostitutes by using it to cheat at card games, to identify women who need little or no seducing and for other selfish ends.
Over-confidence brings him within the reach of the law and he serves a jail sentence.  With knowledge gained while serving in the Army Medical Corps and a stolen diploma, he is able to pose as a doctor.  Not until the close of his life does he become something of what he could always have been: a great humanitarian."
