Description:
The First UK printing published by Heinemann in 1928. The BOOK is in near Fine condition with just a little light pushing at the spine ends and a hint of rubbing to the lower corners. Mild toning to the text-block with light spotting to the prelims and offsetting to the blank end-papers. Small neat bookseller's sticker to the lower front pastedown otherwise from inscriptions. The scarce WRAPPER is complete and is in near Fine condition. A remarkable survivor as the jacket is slightly larger than the book, and is particularly susceptible to wear. Light edge-wear with very mild toning to the spine and flap folds with a few odd light marks. Fading of the green lettering to the spine. The Ralph Keene wrapper artwork is exceptionally bright for its age and looks very striking in the removable Brodart archival cover. The author's very scarce second novel. Collectible.

Description:
The Sole UK printing published by The Pandora Press in 1961. Number 116 of only 150 numbered copies issued. The BOOK is in near Fine condition with just very slight splaying of the front board and a hint of toning to the text-block. Original navy cloth with the spine lettered in gilt. Free from inscriptions and erasures. 11 illustrations (3 full-page) printed from lino, rubber cuts and line-blocks in various striking colours by Rigby Graham. No Wrapper as issued. The edition was originally intended to consist of 250 copies, but disaster struck after the seventy-sixth printing; the sheets had been spread out to dry over the floor of an attic, when a sudden spell of sunshine hatched out woodworm in the floor, and overnight more than one hundred of the sheets were peppered with holes. As the sheet had a five-colour linocut on it, reprinting was impossible, and the edition was, in consequence, reduced by nearly half. (See: Cave The Private Press, p.260). Scarce.
