The superb dust jacket design is by Paul Nash, whose clipped signature has been tipped to the front free endpaper.
Octavo. Original brown cloth, title gilt to the spine, top edge brown. With the dust jacket.
Spine mildly creased, top-stain a little faded, an excellent copy with the jacket spine-tanned and somewhat rubbed at the extremities, a small stain at the head, and small internal tape repair at foot of spine.
