First edition, first printing. The publisher's retained copy. Original black cloth with gilt titles to the spine, in dustwrapper. An excellent near fine copy, the binding square and firm, the contents with the publisher's "Archive Copy" stamp to the title page are otherwise clean throughout. Complete with the rubbed and nicked original dustwrapper which has a couple of closed tears and a lightly faded spine. Very scarce.
The autobiography of Paprika, the executive vice-president of Jay Thorpe, one of America's most exclusive fashion retailers for women. Provenance: From the archive of the publisher Victor Gollancz.
