First large paper edition published by The Bodley Head in 1932. This is printed on specially made rag paper and is only 1 of 105 copies. This is copy number 59. It is in near fine condition. There is rubbing to the top front outside corner and a couple of small marks. The pages inside are very clean and there isn't any foxing or previous owner's marks at all. The cover design by Alan Odle for the trade edition has been tipped into the front and on the next page the author has signed and numbered this copy. Overall a very nice near fine copy.
A story centered around the lives of three docker boys in Liverpool, and the relationship between the oldest of the three boys and his widowed mother.
