First edition. Second issue in the green boards lettered in black to the spine, without the front endpaper and with the dust jacket price clipped, all probably indicating that it was a remainder issue. The book is firmly and squarely bound, the boards are clean though a little bumped and rubbed at the extremities. The text block is slightly toned and dusty. The dust jacket is the original, it is slightly toned with minor staining and some chips, light rubbing and short closed tears to the edges, some of which have been repaired with small pieces of tape. The last published novel of Rhys’ early career, prior to an extraordinarily long period in the literary wilderness given her talent.
