Faber, London(1954). First edition (first printing) of the author's celebrated debut novel. 8vo. 248pp. Red cloth lettered in white at the spine. Top edge very lightly spotted.

Harrods Library blind stamp to the base of the rear pastedown and indications of careful plate removal from the front pastedown. A very good copy in non-price-clipped (12s 6d net) dust wrapper designed by Anthony Gross, split into two parts at the spine panel-rear panel join, somewhat tanned at the spine panel, chipped at the spine ends with several tiny slivers of loss from the head and just a little more from the base, and some slight edge-nicking and creasing, and a little chafing to several natural folds..
