Description:
The First UK printing published by The Hogarth Press, London in 1938. The BOOK is in near Fine condition and appears unread. A hint of pushing at the spine tips with only very light toning and dustiness to the text-block. The WRAPPER is complete and is in near Fine condition with just very slight toning to the spine and light age related markings. The Vanessa Bell wrapper artwork looks very striking in the removable Brodart archival cover. Only 1200 copies printed (Woolmer 439). A very sharp copy of the author's first novel and extremely scarce to find in such condition. As nice a copy as you are likely to find. Ashton Rare Books welcomes direct contact.
