First edition, first impression of the Morgan’s first novel, based on his experiences in the Royal Navy between 1907 and 1913. The Gunroom criticised the Royal Navy, in particular the continual mistreatment of junior officers. As a result it was unofficially suppressed and thus rather rare.

Octavo. Original dark blue cloth, titles to spine gilt. With the pictorial dust jacket. Spine gently cocked, spine ends slightly rubbed, very light tanning to endpapers. Otherwise an excellent copy in a bright jacket with lightly nicked spine ends and slightly rubbed extremities.
