PAYMENT DEFERRED

FORESTER C S

  • Edition: First Edition
  • Quantity available: 1
London: Bodley Head, 1926. First Edition. Hard Cover. Dust Jacket. First Export Edition. A VG+ copy with a few small marks to the cloth, light rubbing to the spine ends and a small previous owner’s book-plate to the front free end-paper. The D/W has benefitted from some skilled restoration to a few old pieces of clear tape to the exterior spine folds and to the bottom 2 ½ inches of the spine (including replacement of THE BODLEY HEAD). The D/W has no price to the spine suggesting that it was an export issue. To prove the first edition status of the D/W a black-and-white photocopy of the one in the British Library is included (which is identical) together with a before-and-after colour picture which clearly shows the extent of the restoration that has been undertaken. The D/W now shows as a near fine (or better) example. Rare. Haycraft-Queen Cornerstone
