First edition, signed limited issue, one of 125 copies printed on hand-made paper and signed by Armstrong on the limitation page. The publisher’s retained copy with their ink-stamp to the front free endpaper. “Armstrong’s novels, his most substantial artistic accomplishment, were written in the Edwardian tradition of John Galsworthy and Arnold Bennett and are characterized by carefully drawn portraits of figures from the upper-middle-class society into which he was born” (ODNB).

Octavo. Original black cloth, vellum backstrip lettered in gilt. Faint spotting to vellum and endleaves. An excellent, notably tight copy.
