First UK edition, first printing. Publisher's original blue boards with gilt titles to spine in the Adrian Bailey illustrated dustwrapper. An excellent near fine copy, the binding square and firm, the contents clean throughout and without previous owner's inscriptions or stamps. Complete with the lightly rubbed and dusty dustwrapper which is very slightly toned to the spine and without loss or tears. Not price-clipped (10s 6d net to the front flap, crossed through).
An attractive example of Roth's first book, comprising the title novella and five short stories.
