First edition, first printing. Publisher's original red cloth with black titles to the upper board and spine, in the Bip Pares illustrated dustwrapper. Illustrated title page. An excellent near fine copy, the binding square and firm, the cloth bright and fresh. The contents, with spotting to the closed text block edge are otherwise clean and without inscriptions or stamps. Complete with the lightly rubbed and nicked dustwrapper that is a little dust-marked to the rear panel and flap edges and is otherwise without fading, loss or tears. Not price-clipped (9/6 net to the lower front flap). Scarce in dustwrapper.

A novel "of the flamboyant, vital and often vulgar London of the 'nineties, withits mixture of naivete and sophistication - a London that had died before a German bomber scarred its bricks and mortar, a world where money could buy flaunting luxury and vanish almost overnight..." (publisher's blurb).
