Book Description

The First UK printing published by Faber and Faber, London in 1933. The BOOK is in near Fine condition with just some very light toning to the text-block. Free from inscriptions. The correct first state wrapper (black and blue colouring) is complete and is in near Fine condition. Light edge-wear and a little creasing to the edges. Mild rubbing in places with light toning and just a hint of fading of the blue colouring to the spine. The E. McKnight Kauffer wrapper artwork looks striking in the removable Brodart archival cover. Profusely illustrated with 128 full-page collotype reproductions. A very sharp copy of an important title and very elusive with such attributes.
