Book Description
1st Edition, 1st Impression. 14.3 x 22.1 cm blue cloth with dark blue titles to the spine. Top edge blue, 190 [2] pp with photographic portrait frontispiece of Stein. In original unclipped jacket designed by Cecil Beaton, priced at 15s net. The book is clean and bright with just a hint of dust staining to the edges, a little pushing to the spine tips and a touch of shelfwear. Internally the book is clean and bright and without name, inscription or bookplate. The dust jacket, which is now protected in a removable clear cover (not shown), has a just a hint of toning to the spine and is a little rubbed on the spine tips and corners with minimal loss and along both joints with a hint of surface abrasion. There is a little spotting to the top edge of the flaps and to the verso and a few closed tears of under 0.5cm as well as two longer ones of 1.5 and 2cm along the top edge with associated creasing these tears have been stabilised by tape on the verso of the jacket. All in all an excellent copy of Stein’s experiences in occupied France during World War II and her observations on war in general.
