Book Description

The First UK printing published by Chatto and Windus, London in 1936. The BOOK is in Very Good++ or better condition. Light pushing at the spine ends. The binding remains tight. Light spotting and offsetting to the prelims and rear end-papers. Small light stain to the upper text-block but the pages remain clean. Free from inscriptions and erasures. The scarce WRAPPER is complete and is in Very Good+ condition. Some loss at the corners and spine ends just involving the top of some of the letters of 'Summer'. Light toning to the spine and flap edges. The repeated wraparound wrapper design by M.T. Ritchie (Trekkie Parsons) looks striking in the removable Brodart archival cover. Trekkie Parsons was an acclaimed illustrator and artist, associated with the Bloomsbury group and who went on to become Leonard Woolf's 'companion' after the death of his wife Vanessa. She undertook many commissions for The Hogarth Press. The author's very scarce fourth novel. Collectible
