About This Item

The First UK printing published by Jonathan Cape in 1944 to war time economy standards. The BOOK is in Very Good++ or better condition. a little fading and wear to the spine ends. The silver titling remain bright. a little toning to the text block. Penned gift inscription to the front blank end paper. The fragile paper WRAPPER is complete and bears the correct price of 7s 6d.net. It is in Very Good+ condition. Some edge-wear with a little loss at the spine ends, rubbing to the folds and some fading of the red colouring to the spine. The Hans Tisdall wrapper artwork looks very attractive in the removable Brodart archival cover. The author's first novel and increasingly scarce with such attributes. Ashton Rare Books welcomes direct contact.
