Ross, Alan & Minton, John (Illus.)v
Time Was Away : A Notebook In Corsica
UK: John Lehmann, London, 1948. The First UK printing published by John Lehmann, London in 1948. The BOOK is in Very Good++ or better condition. The correct first issue boards designed by Keith Vaughan with a green panel and gilt titling to the spine (the second state binding had a plain yellow spine). Slight rubbing of the gilt lettering to the green panel. Light toning and spotting to the text-block. Some light spotting to the prelims and again very lightly to the extreme edges of a few pages. Free from inscriptions and erasures. The WRAPPER is complete and is in Very Good condition. The wraparound pictorial wrapper is in two pieces which meet at the spine with some loss of the central spine panel. There is a loose small fragment at the lower spine. A little loss at the upper spine end. Having said this, the wrapper comes together very well and remains very attractive in the removable Brodart archival cover. Profusely illustrated throughout in B/W and with full colour lithographs by John Minton. One of the most significant illustrated travel books of the 20th century and now increasingly elusive to find as the first issue, more-so with the wrapper. Collectible. More images available on request. Ashton Rare Books welcomes direct contact.
