Account Rendered: A novel


FIRST EDITION. 8vo, pp. viii, 334. Maroon cloth, spine lettered in gilt. Lean to spine, pushing to heel of spine. Else, clean and tidy, especially given the poor post-war paper stock. In the original dust jacket with its apt melodramatic cover vignette (and double cleff-cum-noose spine design): ragged, losses to spines end, corners and bottom of front panel, numerous closed tears with amateur tape-repairs to reverse. Very good/ good-only. A robust copy of Brittain’s penultimate novel.
