Stockley's last book is extremely rare. I have only ever seen this one copy, which I bought.

The first Cassell edition was published 11 June 1936. It contains three short novels:

The Price of a Rose

Show Week

Suicide Season

My copy is more likely a second printing, even though the copyright page states:

First edition June, 1936

Second edition July, 1936

This book is so rare, I am surprised that it had a second printing. Maybe the first print-run was very small. It was never published in the USA.

Very sad that Stockley wrote of a suicide season, seeing how she ended her life on 15 January, 1936 by inhaling coal gas in her London home. Her fading popularity and reduced financial circumstances may have played a factor in her death.
