Waugh, Evelyn ~ Edmund Campion : First Issue
Longmans, Green and Co., London : 1935
The First UK printing published by Longmans, Green and Co., London in 1935. The BOOK is in Very Good++ condition. The crimson top-stain is still present. Light pushing at the spine ends. Light toning and spotting to the end papers and text-block. Free from inscriptions and erasures. The upper corners of five pages are very slightly proud due to the way the pages have been cut by the printer. The WRAPPER is complete and is in Very Good++ condition. It is the correct first issue. Light fading of the lettering and publisher's device to the spine. Slight loss at the spine ends. An old tape remnant and a small area of professional Japanese tissue paper repair to the verso of the upper spine which does not show through to the front. Very light spotting in places. The fragile wrapper remains very attractive in the removable Brodart archival cover. A scarce title in such collectible condition.
