A first edition, first printing published by Gollancz in 1933. A near fine book with one small name to the front endpaper and a small book ticket (The Times) to the rear end pastedown. Some rubbing to corners. In a good unclipped wrapper which has some internal archival repairs and skilful repair to the 'T', 'E' and 'T' of the title on the front panel. there is shallow chipping to the spine tips with a larger chip to the left of the head of the spine affecting 'Tes' of 'Testament'. Rubbing to the edges as well as creasing. Excessively scarce to find the dust wrapper in any condition. Brittain's autobiographical story of the years 1900-1925 and a cornerstone of WW1 literature.
