Author / Artist:

Galsworthy, John

Publisher:

London: William Heinemann. 1922

Description:

First edition, first printing. Signed limited edition. Publisher's original green soft leather with titles in gilt to the upper board and spine. A better than very good copy, the notriously fragile binding complete with minor rubbing and scuffing to the slightly faded spine. The contents are in fine condition without owner's inscriptions or stamps and without loose or torn pages. There is a production fault to the front free endpaper meaning that it is folded to the top right corner. Housed in the original card slipcase which is rubbed and torn to the edges. Very scarce in anything approaching collectable condition, the leather used in production is so soft, and the paper stock so thin that many copies have perished or only survive in poor state.

Price:

£275.00

Notes:

Hand numbered 223 of 275 copies and signed by the author in black ink on the limitation page.
