Upward, Edward ~ Journey To The Border : With The Vanessa Bell Wrapper
The Hogarth Press : 1938
The First UK printing published by The Hogarth Press, London in 1938. The BOOK is in near Fine condition with the original publisher's blue cloth, lettered black on spine. Light pushing at the spine tips and a little dustiness to the upper text-block. Some mild toning to the text-block. Light offsetting to the endpapers but internally clean and free from inscriptions. The WRAPPER is complete and is in Very Good++ or better condition. Light edge wear at the spine ends and corners. Some toning to the folds and the spine but the red lettering is still legible. Some age related markings in places. The Vanessa Bell wrapper artwork still remains very striking in the removable Brodart archival cover. The author's first novel of which only 1200 copies were printed (Woolmer 439). An increasingly elusive title.
CONDITION: Near Fine
JACKET: Very Good++
