London: Secker & Warburg, 1959. First UK Edition. Hardcover. The true First Edition of the author's first book, in what is, incontestably, the most graphically interesting of the three dust jacket designs (English and American) in which the first edition has appeared. Small 8vo; 237pp. Fine (and unread) publisher's emerald green cloth, the spine titled in silver; in a just about Fine (very lightly rubbed to the tip and toe of the spine, but retaining its price of 15s) example of the pictorial dust jacket designed by Robin Ray. A scarce collector's copy. Fine / Fine-. Item #BB0475
Note: With few exceptions (always noted), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves.
