Graves, Robert

I. Claudius

Published: Arthur Barker : 1934


The First UK edition published by Arthur Barker in 1934. Black cloth boards with gilt lettering to the spine. Folding chart at rear. The BOOK is in Very Good++ or better condition with very light foxing to prelims and fore-edges. Mild pushing at the spine ends. Mild toning and dustiness to the text block. One small neat previous owner's name to the upper front blank end paper. The book is very tight. A very sharp copy! The WRAPPER is complete and is in Very Good++ condition with some wear to the extremities, light soiling, a couple of short closed tears and some moderate toning to the spine. Chips to the lower rear edge and lower spine. The iconic John Aldridge designed wrapper artwork presents very well in the removable Brodart archival cover. One of the author's key titles memorably filmed by the BBC in 1976 to critical acclaim and starring Sir Derek Jacobi. An increasingly scarce title to find in any collectible condition.
