What Our Customers Say...
First Edition, Publishers' Original Binding
The first edition, first impression of this privately printed work.
A fantastic copy, which is in a fine condition. Uncommon for a copy of this work in such a lovely condition.
With the tipped in price note and the acquisition details on a pink slip of paper as called for.
Norman Douglas wrote this work as a reply to D.H Lawrence's attack on Maurice Magnus in his introduction to 'Memoirs of the Foreign Legion'. Douglas and Lawrence were both friends of Magnus, and Douglas was his literary executor. Lawrence's introduction to the memoir was used to sell the book, but Douglas felt he had maligned his dear friend. This feud between Douglas and Lawrence was long-running and this publication was the first foray into the public sphere of the voicing of Douglas' distaste.
In the publisher's original paper wraps. Externally, excellent with minor shelfwear. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright and clean.
