London, Gollancz, 1932. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. Presentation copy to publisher Grant Richards. A very good copy in a good jacket. A rare book in jacket, doubly so signed (well, technically, our research has brought forth neither signed nor jacketed copies so signed and jacketed copies are thus equally rare!) Inscribed by the author 'In sincere reard for Grant Richards who has shown[?] me much flattering affection & has commissioned a title. George Slocombe, 1933'. No copies of the British first located at auction. COPAC locates three copies. Published in the US under the title Romance of a Dictator. Loss to the jacket at the lower spine tip, smaller patch to upper spine tip encroaching on the title. Yellow toned, particularly to the spine. Creases worn. Book in very good shape.
