How it works


The first edition in dw. of Waugh's most sought after title and arguably his highspot. Small bookseller's label on the lower edge of the front pastedown and two small 2mm. spot stains on the ffep. Otherwise a very good plus clean, unmarked and unfoxed copy in the original red cloth with no fading of the spine.  In an about very good first issue non price clipped dw. which has some age soiling, a few small chips, mainly at the extremes of the spine and a 2x1cm. stain at the top fore corner of the front panel. Still a much better than usual copy of what is notoriously a very fragile wartime dw. Please note that this is NOT the much more common, less desirable and significantly less expensive Book Society issue.
