London: Harvill, 1947. First Edition. About Near Fine in a Very Good plus dust jacket and yellow belly band. Spine slightly cocked, with light offsetting to the endpapers. Jacket has a half inch chip to the top of the spine, with light rubbing at the spine ends and corners, and a half inch closed tear at the top of the front panel. Belly band has an inch-long tear and associated creasing at the front flap fold, soil to the spine panel, and a splash to the rear panel. Altogether, an attractive copy of this edition, unusual to find with belly band.
