About This Item

The First UK printing published by The Hogarth Press in 1937. The BOOK is in near Fine condition. Original blue cloth lettered in black. A hint of pushing and toning at the extreme spine tips. Mild toning to the text-block. Light spotting and offsetting to the prelims. Free from inscriptions. The WRAPPER is complete and is in Very Good++ or better condition. A hint of edge-wear at the spine tips with some very light spotting in places. The peach colouring remains very bright. Some light toning to the spine. One small closed tear to the rear upper flap fold. The Richard Kennedy wrapper design looks very striking in the removable Brodart archival cover. 'Sally Bowles' was Isherwood's fourth solo publication, his second Berlin novel, and was subsequently incorporated into 'Goodbye to Berlin' two years later in 1939. Only 2040 copies were printed (Woolmer 411). The nicest copy we have handled to date. Ashton Rare Books welcomes direct contact.
