First edition, first printing, complete with original dustwrapper. Publisher's original yellow cloth with red-patterned trim and red titles to the spine. A very good copy, the binding square and firm but with some rubbing and bumping to the spine tips and some darkening to the top edge of the upper board. The contents, with some spotting to the front endpaper, a faint pencil inscription to the front pastedown, and some offsetting to the rear pastedown, are otherwise clean throughout. The upper text block edge is somewhat dusty. Publisher's original bookmark inside. The dustwapper, with darkening to the spine and a small tear to the upper tip, spotting to the dust flaps, and some bumping to the edges, is otherwise in good condition.
A highly experimental and radical work which Frederic Jameson, in his book Fables of Aggression, dubbed "the supreme realization of what has to be called theological science fiction". (Jameson, Frederic: Fables of Aggression: Wyndham Lewis, the Modernist as Fascist. Berkeley: University of California Press, 1979. pg. 6)
