London, Duckworth, 1927. First edition, first impression. Hardback. A very good copy in a good jacket. Maschwitz is perhaps best known for his work in entertainment and co-writing the adaptation of Goodbye Mr Chips with R.C. Sherriff and Claudine West. Uncommon, particularly in the jacket. Some tanning to the spine, with a little foxing. Mark to the spine, gift inscription and some offsetting. Top edge dusty. A large area of insect damage to the jacket's rear. [10804, Hyraxia Books].
