A first edition, first printing published by Gollancz in 1934. A very good book with an inscription to the front endpaper – a little dustiness to the top edge. In the scarce dust wrapper with a small chip to the top of the rear panel, accompanied by some light chipping to the head of the spine. Corners with a little loss.

A novel that delves into the life and inner conflicts of Lewis Eliot, a talented but unfulfilled scientist and writer. Set against the backdrop of post-World War II Britain, the story explores Eliot’s personal and professional struggles, including his troubled marriage, intellectual aspirations, and ethical dilemmas. The narrative intricately weaves together themes of science, morality, ambition, and the complexities of human relationships. Eliot’s journey serves as a reflection of the intellectual and moral challenges faced by individuals in a rapidly changing world. Snow’s novel is a thought-provoking exploration of the human condition and the pursuit of knowledge and meaning.
