1941 - The Hill of Doves
THE HILL OF DOVES was first published in America in 1941 by Houghton Mifflin Company, and was first published in Britain in 1942 by Collins.
I own a copy of a Houghton Mifflin later printing, which has been signed on the title-page
This copy is circa 1943, due to the presence of THE CONGO SONG in the "Books by STUART CLOETE" list
The photos below are of my copy of the American first edition
Below: a photo of my 2 Houghton Mifflin copies of THE HILL OF THE DOVES
Notice, both have Houghton Mifflin Co. printed at the bottom of the spine. I have also seen copies dated 1942 on their title-pages with nothing printed at the bottom of the spine.
