The Waste Land.
First English edition, sole impression. One of about 460 copies hand-printed by the Woolfs. The label is the one with the border of asterisks, Gallup’s state 1 of 3, albeit without apparent priority. From the library of the archaeologist Kenneth C. Murray (1903–1972) with his pencil ownership inscription.
Octavo. Original marbled blue paper boards, white paper title label to front board printed in black. Some minor spotting, backstrip sunned as usual but a very nice copy of this notoriously vulnerable production.
