The First UK printing published by Putnam, London in 1929. The BOOK is in near Fine condition. Light pushing at the spine tips and the slightest toning to the spine. Light offsetting to the endpapers with Hansard Watt's attractive bookplate (designed by the engraver Martin Hardie) to the front pastedown. A hint of toning to the text-block and page edges. Free from inscriptions. The dark green top-stain is present but slightly faded. The WRAPPER is complete and is in Very Good++ or better condition. It is the correct first issue with price '7s. 6s. net' to the lower front flap and the correct reviews to the front flap and rear panel. Mild edge-wear at the corners and spine ends. Some rubbing and creasing at the upper spine end with two small closed tears to the upper spine folds. Just a hint of toning to the spine. The wrapper appears very striking in the removable Brodart archival cover. Loosely inserted is the publisher's promotional flyer for this title. The flyer is in fine condition. A very sharp copy of the author's landmark novel based on his experience in WW1. Increasingly scarce as the correct first issue and in such condition. Collectible.
