First edition, first impression of this memoir by the founder of the Obelisk Press. Scarce, due to most of the edition having been destroyed when a Nazi bomb hit the publisher’s warehouse.

Octavo. Original green boards, titles to spine silver, yellow endpapers, top edge green. With the dust jacket. Bookseller’s stamp to front free endpaper. Spine rolled, boards stained, edges foxed; a very good copy in the chipped, torn and price-clipped jacket with tape repairs.
