Description:
The First UK printing published by George Allen & Unwin, London in 1939 The BOOK is in Very Good+ condition with the publisher's original red cloth boards, lettered to the spine and the front board in black. Some light ghosting to the covers in places with some dust-marking and light spotting to the top edge. Early splaying of the front board. The WRAPPER is complete and is in Very Good+ condition with some fading and toning to the spine. A few marks in places with a small closed tear to the upper spine fold with a little associated loss. The wrapper presents well in the removable Brodart archival cover. This book was previously owned by the Scottish Modernest artist and lawyer Edwin G Lucas with his penned name and date 1939 to the upper front blank end-paper. The title is ironic, as the book conveys the author's revulsion to anti-semitism following his visit to Germany in 1937. An increasingly scarce title. Ashton Rare Books welcomes direct contact.

The production transferred to The Savoy Theatre for a three-week run in January 1929 and thence to The Prince of Wales where it ran for two years, during which time it was also produced by 14 other companies in the Anglophone world and in 17 other languages across the… Read more
