First edition, first printing. Original purple cloth with gilt titles to the spine, in the Vanessa Bell illustrated dustwrapper. An excellent very near fine copy, the binding square and firm, the contents clean throughout and without previous owner's inscriptions or stamps. Small stationer's book label partially removed from the bottom edge of the front pastedown. Complete with the original price-clipped dustwrapper which is entirely without loss or tears and just a little fading of the spine. An attractive example.
10,000 copies printed, published on the 5th December 1947. (Kirkpatrick A29a).
