London: Faber & Faber Limited, 1939. First Edition. Thick octavo. First British Edition, trade issue, published simultaneously with the American, and the British deluxe. Total printing of 3400 copies, with 50 copies in sheets destroyed (Slocum and Cahoon A47). Light foxing and offsetting to the endpapers, small bookseller's label inside back cover, spine ends lightly crimped with bottom corners gently bumped; near fine in a near fine jacket, completely unrestored, clipped at all edges and price-clipped, with three short closed tears and a hint of edgewear, still bright and unfaded.
