First hardcover edition of the original Olympia Press edition. Two volumes in one, as issued. Publisher's original blue Rexene with gilt titles to the spine, in dustwrapper. An excellent near fine copy, the binding firm and square, the contents toned to the text block edge otherwise clean throughout and without previous owner's inscriptions or stamps. Complete with the lightly rubbed and toned original dustwrapper which is a little creased at the top edge of the flaps. Publisher's ink stamped number (1694) to the bottom edge of the rear flap. An attractive example.




This printing, produced in small numbers in Israel c.1958, is the first Olympia Press edition of the novel to appear in hardback.
