London, Faber & Faber, 1935. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. A very good copy. Inscribed by the author. Eddison has presented the copy to Library of Trinity College, Oxford. Eddison studied at Trinity. The inscription reads 'Presented to the Library of Trinity College, Oxford, by the author, E. R. Eddison, February 1935' followed by a note in Greek (something about chestnuts and Aphrodite? - Aphrodite being the model for Eddison's goddess in the book). The first in the author's acclaimed trilogy, with volumes two and three following in 1941 and 1958. Eddison was an occasional Inkling, and his work was highly praised by Tolkien and Lewis. An important book. Condition: The jacket's a little loose with a couple of short tears and some light edge wear. The book has been stamped a couple of times by the library, including one to the title page and one to the front pastedown. Upper board has a library sticker. Boards a little rubbed. Vertical crease to jacket suggesting it was stored (or perhaps supplied). Illustrations by Keith Anderson [8131, Hyraxia Books].
