First edition, third impression, the same year as the first; this copy inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper to “J. Keating With best wishes from Walter De La Mare 1923”, possibly the Welsh novelist Joseph Keating (1871-1934), whose novels “combined a realistic portrayal of the industrial workplace with the conventions of the romantic genre that he believed necessary for commercial success” (ODNB).

Octavo. Original triskelion-patterned boards, black cloth spine with white paper label lettered in red, fore- and bottom edges untrimmed. House in a custom red morocco-backed red buckram slipcase with chemise. Spine-label tanned, small portion of wear to bottom edge of front board, leaves toned as usual. A very good copy.
