Winner Take Nothing.
First edition, first printing, first issue jacket (quoting Laurence Stallings’s review of “Death in the Afternoon” on rear panel). An exceptionally nice copy in a superb, unclipped and entirely unrestored jacket. This collection contains 14 short stories, of which six (“The Light of the World”, “A Way You’ll Never Be”, “The Mother of a Queen”, “One Reader Writes”, “A Day’s Wait”, and “Fathers and Sons”) were printed here for the first time.
Octavo. Original black cloth, gilt title label to spine and front, top edge red. With the dust jacket. Extremely minor rubbing to tips, very faint partial toning to endpapers only, a superb copy in excellent condition, with the jacket only lightly rubbed at the extremities and with a few very small closed tears to top edge.
