Secker & Warburg. London. 1945.
FIRST EDITION. 1st impression. 8vo. A very good copy of the book with the cloth still dark green and the white lettering on the spine still bright and sharp. Neat previous owner's inscription, dated Christmas 1945, on the front blank free endpaper, otherwise this is a very clean and bright copy throughout. Inner hinges cracked but holding firm. In the original 1st edition green, grey and white dustwrapper with some chipping and rubbing to the edges and some loss to the top and bottom of the spine and corners but all lettering unaffected. Price still intact on front inner flap but inked over. Wrapper has the red searchlight books printing on the reverse. Overall a near very good copy of this classic work.
