Kelland, Clarence Buddington THIRTY PIECES OF SILVER
New York and London: Harper & Brothers Publishers, 1913. B00087GHLG First edition, first printing. In vivid purple cloth with gilt lettering, blind-embossed decoration, and silver-stamped coin device; dust jacket. Hardcover. Tiny dots of soiling to endsheets, faint foxing to preliminaries, tape ghost to pastedown, else near fine; in a worn, edge-nicked very good dust jacket, that shows some cello-tape reinforcement at the upper edge of front panel, tape ghost to rear flap.
Lovely example of this slender inspirational tale about an atheist who reaches enlightenment through the vehicle of an ancient coin, which sends him back in time where he must play the role of Judas and betray Jesus Christ.
