About This Item

London: Putnam, 1931. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. First British edition, first printing. (Apparently published simultaneously with the American edition.) 705, (2) p. Very Good+ in Good dust jacket. Foxing to fore edge, corners lightly bumped. Small tear in cloth at head. Dust jacket flap price intact, chips missing at extremities, especially at head. Closed tear through back panel that has been mended with archival, ph-neutral mending tissue on verso. Includes gray publisher's promotional card. British writer and playwright Lionel Britton's only novel, a long out-of-print classic of experimental Depression-era proletarian literature narrated in the second person. It was hailed by George Orwell and Bertrand Russell among other critics. Quite uncommon in its dust jacket.
