London: S C M Press Ltd, 1956. Hardcover. 264p., frontis on coated paper, first edition red cloth gilt in decorated yellow dj; a sound copy with the following faults: jacket was protected in an ancient brodart which the protector saw fit to fasten with then-new scotch tape. Find tape residues on boards, endsheets and flaps. Also, a former owner recorded his name at the bottom of title page and date of purchase along the gutter. A lone numeral subtends the publisher's slug; all additions were done neatly enough. In all other respects a nice copy.
