First edition, first impression. Robert Graves only used the pseudonym of John Doyle for this one work but he adopted a number of pen names throughout his early career, particularly for contributions to periodicals such as The Carthusian, The Spectator, and Woman's Leader. The Sussex ledge shows 106 copies sold by 6 January 1928.

This copy has the ownership inscription of a Mary Neighbour giving a North Oxford address in Polstead Road - Graves studied English Literature at Oxford University after the war, living briefly in the house of John Masefield on Boar's Hill.

Condition
