Winner Take Nothing.New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1933 Stock Code: 132937
First edition, first printing, first issue jacket (quoting Laurence Stallings's review of "Death in the Afternoon" on rear panel). 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.
The book fine, the jacket a little chipped at ends and fore-corners and otherwise a little rubbed along edges, two closed tears to front panel from top and bottom edge and some smaller nicks to edges of rear panel, generally a little toned, still a very good copy, some tape reinforcements to verso but unrestored.
