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.
'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 year 1700, in a France where social norms are rapidly changing.
An exciting adventure in its own right, this is a book no David Lindsay devotee will want to be without.
