Powell, Anthony : What’s Become Of Waring
Cassell : 1939
The First UK printing published by Cassell in 1939. The BOOK is in Very Good++ or better condition. Original publisher's brick red cloth with electric blue titling. Slight pushing to the spine tips. Light fading to the spine. Very minor handling wear to edges. Binding remains tight and square. Faint offsetting to the end papers. Light toning and spotting to the text block. One contemporary previous owner's penned name and date to the front pastedown. Genuinely recognised as the author's scarcest title. Fewer than 1000 copies had been sold prior to the destruction in the Blitz of Cassell's stock at La Belle Sauvage near St. Paul's. Powell’s scarce fifth novel, set within the world of publishing and critiquing the fad for spiritualism. An extremely difficult first edition title to find with such attributes.
CONDITION: Very Good++
