With two drawings by Albert Rutherston (Rothenstein).London: Grant Richards Ltd, 1916 Stock Code: 123501
First edition, first impression, of Firbank's second novel, one of 500 copies; this copy without the publisher's catalogue, which, as Benkovitz notes, has no bearing on priority.
Octavo. Original black cloth, spine and front cover lettered in gilt, top edge green. With dust jacket.
Spine ends creased, light bumping to board edges, foxing to prelims and edges of text block. A very good copy in the toned jacket, loss to head of spine, short closed tears to panels, 50 mm closed tear to top tip of front flap.
