ADVENTURES of Monsieur de MAILLY
David Lindsay
Reprinted for the FIRST time since original publication

Lindsay's fourth published novel, 'Adventures of Monsieur
de Mailly' was first published in 1926 in the UK and
released in the US rather inappropriately as 'Blade for Sale'
in the same year. It has not been reprinted since and has
never before been issued in paperback.

'Adventures of Monsieur de Mailly' is a humorous adventure
set in the France of Louis XIV. Possibly the lightest and
least fantastical of David Lindsay's novels, this romp
through the realm of the Sun King nevertheless contains
moments of high tragedy and tantalising glimpses of
Lindsay's fascinating philosophy.

Monsieur Gaston de Mailly is a soldier, an adventurer and
above all a gentleman trying to combat a disgraceful
poverty in the France of the year 1700, a France where
social norms are rapidly changing.

Although it has little in common with '
A Voyage to Arcturus',
'Adventures of Monsieur de Mailly' is an exciting adventure
in its own right and is a book no
David Lindsay devotee will
want to be without.
