Book Description
A 2 Vols. set : Vol.1 ) 'As It Was ' & Vol. 2) 'World Without End' Both books are the First UK printings published by Heinemann, London in 1926 and 1931 respectively. Vol. 1: The BOOK is in Very Good+ condition. Mild pushing and fading at the spine tips. Offsetting to the prelims with some light toning to the text-block and page edges. Mild spotting to the text block but the pages remain clean. Free from inscriptions and erasures. With the errata slip present. The fragile WRAPPER is complete and in Very Good condition. Some loss at the upper spine end and a small chip to the lower rear spine fold. Toning to the spine with light fading of the red titling. The wrapper is lightly spotted but more-so to the plain flaps. Some staining to the lower front panel and lower spine end. The wrapper remains very presentable in the removable Brodart archival cover. The first part of the author's memoir recounting the courtship and early married life to Edward Thomas, the English poet killed in the first World War. This copy is the expurgated form having two cancelled leaves with two pages reinserted (pages 53-56). The publishers removed the two leaves to censor a passage which is quite short and rather more intimate than the rest and referred to 'David' kissing her body and undressing. It is thought that less than ten copies exist of the unexpurgated form of this title. A very scarce title. Vol. 2) The BOOK is in Very Good++ or better condition. Mild pushing at the spine tips. Light offsetting to the prelims with some very light toning to the text-block and page edges. Mild spotting to the text block but the pages remain clean. Free from inscriptions and erasures. The fragile WRAPPER is complete and is in Very Good++ condition. Some mild edge wear with a few small closed tears and nicks. Toning to the spine with light fading of the red titling. Some tape reinforcement to the front spine fold to the verso which does not show through to the front. The wrapper remains very presentable in the removable Brodart archival cover. The second and final part of the author's memoir recounting the courtship and early married life to Edward Thomas, the English poet killed in the first World War. A very collectible 2 volume set more-so with the elusive wrappers. The first set we have handled.
