First edition, first printing. Inscribed on the title page in black ink “To D[esmond] H[armsworth] J. J. Paris 7 iv 1931”. An outstanding association copy inscribed to the London publisher Desmond Harmsworth who together with The Obelisk Press issued the rare 1932 first English edition (printed in France) of Pomes Penyeach.
Original pale green paper boards with black titles to the front and paper label printed “Price Two Shillings” fixed to the rear board, presumably mounted over the printed “Price One Shilling” but not recorded in Slocum. Original plain tissue dustwrapper with the titles traced and inked in black. Housed in a black quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. A very good copy with small chips to the spine tips and light browning to the extremities.
