A first edition, first printing published by Secker and Warburg in 1945. A very good book with inscriptions. Some mottling to the front and rear boards – contents are clean. Slight cracking at hinges as is common. In a very good (or better) clipped dust wrapper with Searchlight Books advertisement printed in blue to the verso. Some abrasions here and there to the hinges and upper panel fore-edge, though less rubbing to the spine panel than is often seen. Some shallow chipping to the spine ends and corners with some internal neat tape reinforcement to spine and hinges. A very good copy without restoration – first editions of this title are genuinely thin on the ground at present.
