Mock Beggar Hall.
First edition, first impression. “The whole tone of the book is philosophical involving a series of meditations on relativity and Time” (Patrick J. Quinn ed., New Perspectives on Robert Graves, 1999, p. 75). Nicholson’s sinister cover design of a hanging bat is stunning.
Quarto. Original grey pictorial boards printed in black, all edges untrimmed. Cover design by William Nicholson. A little wear to spine, covers slightly dished, a touch of foxing in places. A very good copy.
Bibliography: Higginson & Williams A10; Woolmer 46 ("published May 1924... number of copies not known but the Sussex ledger shows 299 copies sold by 18 January 1926").Don't understand our descriptions? Try reading our Glossary
