Waugh, Evelyn


London: Chapman and Hall. 1934


First edition, first printing. Publisher's original snake-skin effect cloth with titles in gilt to the spine, in dustwrapper and retaining the original wraparound band. Housed in a purpose made ribbon pull slipcase. A lovely near fine copy, the binding very bright and square with a bump to the fore-edge. The contents are very clean throughout and without previous owner's inscriptions or stamps. Complete with the excellent original dustwrapper which has a few tiny nicks at the extremities with some gentle toning of the spine. This copy retains the rare publisher's wraparound band which has a clean closed tear, with an old tape repair to the reverse and some creasing to the lightly faded spine. A scarce title in dustwrapper, exceptionally so in this original condition.
