Book Description

The First UK printing published by Hutchinson, London in 1925. The BOOK is in Very Good+ condition. Publisher's original cloth-backed patterned paper-covered boards with the paper title label complete. Slight rubbing and a touch of wear to the extremities. Light offsetting to the blank end-papers and mild toning to the text-block. Free from inscriptions and erasures. The scarce fragile WRAPPER is in Very Good+ condition with some edge-wear and rubbing to the folds. Slight loss at the upper spine end. Some splitting to the rear spine fold but the covers remain attached. Two small penned letters to the lower front flap. The large photographic portrait of the 'editor', gives the game away as to the real identity of the author of this title. The wrapper is protected in a removable Brodart archival cover. A Cubist portrait frontispiece of 'the author' by G.E.Calthrop. A very nice copy of Coward's second collection of twenty two poems which were pseudonymous 'Edith Sitwell' pastiches.
