London, Gollancz, 1930. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. A very good copy. His first novel. In the jacket and inscribed by Williams. A superb book. Rare in general, moreso inscribed. The inscription reads 'For Dorinda, who may dislike it from Charles Williams, 26 May 1930'. Williams used names from Virgil's Bucolics for his colleagues at the Oxford University Press where he worked for many years, including those of his most productive creative period. Humphrey Milford was Caeser, Dorinda referred to Helen Peacock the head of production. An association copy of sorts. [CW Quarterly, 128 p18]. Condition: corners and spine tips chipped, spine a little toned but largely a nice copy. Endpapers foxed and toned. An excellent book. [8863, Hyraxia Books].
