The Corner that Held Them


FIRST UK EDITION. 8vo. Green cloth, gilt lettering to spine. Spine sunned, ends pushed. Exposed edges rubbed. Top edge dusty, a few spots to fore-edge. Attractive woodblock Ex Libris by ‘FS’ to front pastedown: ‘V. E. Moyer’. Else, a tight, tidy copy. In the Phoebe Llewellyn Smith-designed original dust jacket: spine sunned, chipped (including loss of ‘Sylvia’ and partial loss of ‘Windus’ at spine ends) top edge creased, front panel separated along front joint, holding by inch at the bottom (with tape to rear, plus another PO tape repair). Nevertheless, the cover illustration remains unaffected and, indeed, vivid.
