1914 The Prussian Officer and Other Stories
What Our Customers Say...
First Edition, Leather Binding, Rebound
The first edition, first impression of this collection of short stories from the English modernist novelist, whose best known works include 'Lady Chatterley's Lover', and 'Sons and Lovers'.
Roberts A6, first state, with the earlier twenty pages of publisher's advertisements to the rear. MacDonald terms this a second issue, a subject on which bibliographers disagree, though the majority side with Roberts.
A wonderful collection of twelve short stories, including 'Odour of Chrysanthemums' and 'The Thorn in the Flesh', alongside the celebrated titular tale of an army Captain and his orderly.
Retaining the original half title.
A lovely first edition from the English novelist, poet, playwright, essayist, literary critic and painter, who endured official persecution, censorship and misrepresentation of his creative work throughout the second half of his life.
Rebound in half morocco, with marbled paper covered boards. Endpapers renewed. Minor fading to back strip, otherwise externally fine. Internally, firmly bound. Pages a touch age toned, with light spotting to first and last few leaves, and the odd further spot throughout.
Very Good Indeed
