Public Faces. A Novel.
First edition, first impression of Nicolson’s great (and, from the jacket blurb, seemingly prophetic) political novel: “Staged in the Foreign Office, the book describes how, during the first week of June, 1939, Great Britain becomes involved in an international crisis, which exposes her to the alternative of complete humiliation or of war against a combination of the four great powers”.

Octavo. Original brown cloth, titles to spine in green, green topstain. With the dust jacket. Spine a little rolled and with a crease, a few small marks to covers, topstain faded, some spots to fore-edge, endpapers partially tanned. A very good copy, in the tanned jacket with small chips along the edges.
