London, Hamish Hamilton, 1946. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. A very well preserved copy. Near fine. 'Mother Died To-Day' - a seminal work of existentialism from a wonderful writer. Better than usually seen. Gift inscription to front endpaper, price-clipped. Some limited shelfwear to the jacket edges, lower spine tip with a little crushing. A couple of neat closed tears, barely noticable, and one around 20mm to top of spine a little more pronounced. Cover art by Edward Bawden [7377, Hyraxia Books].
