A First Printing published by John Lehmann in 1949. The BOOK is in VERY GOOD + condition. It shows signs of edge-wear and rubbing.The boards are bumped at the corners and the spine ends are pushed.The spine is a little cocked.There is some fading of colour to the lower spine and less so to the upper spine.The text block is foxed and lightly encroaches on to the page margins in places , the fly papers and first few leaves.This post war production was renowned for using cheap quality paper and it is inevitable that there is the presence of some foxing. The WRAPPER is complete and is in near FINE condition - The Fred Uhlman design looks striking in its removable Brodart archival cover.The rear panel is lightly marked and foxed.There has been some expert minor restoration to the upper and lower spine ends - This is not noticeable from the front and in fact the restoration is seamless. The white panels on the spine are a touch browned. All in all a very attractive wrapper! Author's first novel and extremely scarce to find in collectible condition. ashtonrarebooks welcomes direct contact. Buchnummer des Verkäufers ABE-10660252268
