Description:
The First UK printing published by Boriswood, London in 1935. The BOOK is in Very Good++ condition. Light pushing at the spine ends. Light toning and dustiness to the text-block. A small area of toning corresponding to the wrapper chipped area at the upper spine end. Free from inscriptions and erasures. The WRAPPER is in Very Good+ condition being slightly marked and rubbed and a little dusty in places. A little loss at the upper spine end and upper front spine fold. With the 'Book Guild' recommendation sticker on the front as issued. The wrapper looks striking in the removable brodart archival cover. T.E. Lawrence's name features on the front panel of the dustwrapper and most of the blurb quotes from his preface. The three-page Preface is in fact the letter Lawrence wrote to the publisher recommending publication but prophesying commercial failure thereby. Very Scarce.

Description:
An unknown printing published by Faber and Faber - no date. In as far as I can determine this title was only published with its distinctive grey front cover, with red and yellow lettering, in hardback format. I can find no other paperback copy for sale in this format. This, combined with the fact that this volume has no publication data, such as date, no title page and does not include the plates of the published volume, leads me to conclude this is probably a proof copy. This copy came with a number of other volumes on WWI from the library of Norman Hancock who also wrote on his experiences of the First World War, notably in A Martial Medley (1931) along with David Jones, Eric Partridge and several others. This connection with Jones further makes me think it likely this is a proof copy sent by the publishers to Hancock. The BOOK is wraps format and is in Very Good+ condition. A generally very clean copy throughout. Some light creasing to the front cover. The spine at some point has had clear tape… Read more

Description:
Published by Clover Hill Editions, London in 1977. Number 'XXX1' of only 80 special copies, printed by Will Carter at the Rampant Lions Press on Barcham Green handmade paper, watermarked 'Clover Hill' (made for Douglas Cleverdon in 1936). The BOOK is in Fine condition, bound in quarter-morocco and marbled boards. Illustrated with ten wood engravings by David Jones, this title is considered by many to be the artist's most significant work. These engravings were initially printed in the Golden Cockerel edition in 1927. Jones, however, felt that the some of the delicacy of his wood engravings had been lost, as the paper was not properly dampened by the Press as they hurried to meet a deadline. According to the Publisher's Note by Douglas Cleverdon, Jones acquired the ten blocks in order to ensure that they would not be reprinted without his approval. In 1977, Jones agreed to 'Clover Hill Editions' reprinting the book using his original blocks, in the manner that he originally intended. In this present… Read more
