First thus: first printing of the Secker & Warburg uniform edition. (Originally published by Gollancz in 1939.) Publisher’s original green cloth with red lettering to spine. Red top stain. Cloth faded in places. Very slight foxing to endpapers. Contemporary bookseller’s sticker to front paste-down. In good only dust jacket, browned and scuffed to spine folds with some chips and tears to edges and loss to spine ends and foot of lower panel.
