This is an auction for THE WAR AMONGST THE ANGELS by Michael Moorcock.

“This is the final volume of Moorcock's trilogy about Rose von Bek and her friends Colonel Samuel Oakenhurst, Colinda Dovero, and Jack Karaquazian, who can all transport themselves from our mundane reality into the Second Ether. Rose recounts her life and loves including her involvement in the War in Heaven. Moorcock blends reality and fantasy with myriad references to the real and imagined. Recommended.”
-- Library Journal (US) review:

"The universe is Michael Moorcock's playground in this picaresque "autobiography" of his putative relation Rose von Bek. Rose, born in London in the mid-20th century to Sir Arthur and Lady Eleanor Moorcock, learns her love of wandering from the gypsies who gather near her father's estate. At 7 she decides on a career as a highwayman, at 17 she marries the not-entirely-respectable Count von Bek, and soon thereafter she meets her lover and companion-in-arms Sam Oakenhurst. Rose quickly discovers that she can enter the Second Ether and travel at will between the conventional world and a rollicking, quasi-infinite multiverse where the Chaos Engineers hold sway. At the same time, Sam's friend Jack Karaquazian and the beautiful Colinda Dovero conduct a romantic tragedy on a cosmic scale as Rose and her friends fight the War in Heaven against the Dark Angel Lucifer.”
