About This Item

Secker & Warburg, London, 1929. First edition of the author's first regularly published book, of which 125 numbered and signed copies were printed on vellum paper - this copy is neither numbered or signed, but marked "file Secker" in pencil. 4to. Unpaginated. Yellow cloth lettered in gold at the upper board. Illustrated throughout with two-colour drawings by the author, many of them full-page and with his facsimile captions. Upper edges of boards a little discoloured, and with a little light finger marking to the endpapers and a strip of nigh-on invisible browning. A very good copy in the handsome Tennant-designed pictorial dust wrapper, chipped with half a dozen small areas of loss and some upper edge creasing. A most uncommon book by 'the brightest' of the Bright Young Things, and the long-term lover of Siegfried Sassoon.. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Fair.
