About This Item

The First UK printing published by Constable & Co., Ltd., London, 1923. The BOOK is in Very Good++ or better condition. The publisher's original brown boards with sand-coloured cloth as the spine and half-cover are clean. Light pushing at the spine tips. The red leather label on the spine with the title and author details is complete with just a hint of rubbing to the upper edge. Top edge gilt, others uncut. Some offsetting to the end-papers. Free from inscriptions and erasures. Light toning to the page edges. Some light creasing to the upper corner of a couple of pages. The notoriously fragile WRAPPER is complete and is in Very Good+ condition. Light edge-wear with a little loss at the upper spine end ( not involving any lettering) and the corners. Some internal tape repairs to the spine folds to the verso. Mild toning to the spine and edges, with some light spotting in places. The wrapper presents very well in the removable Brodart archival cover. A handsome production and very scarce with the wrapper. Ashton Rare Books welcomes direct contact.
