Chapman & Hall, 1964.
Complete with original and rare publisher's wraparound band. First edition, first printing. 8vo. Grey boards with silver gilt titles. Typographical dustwrapper with original loose wraparound band. A near fine copy. Some mottling to spine of boards. Internally clean, crisp and unread. The fine dustwrapper has lightest wear and a couple of tiny marks. Faint vertical strip of lightening to leading edge. Original price of 30s net to front flap. Wraparound band in complete condition with a hint of lightening to spine. We have never encountered this wraparound band before but have seen similar on The Ordeal of Gilbert Pinfold.
Authors early life. Hampstead and Lancing schooldays followed by his life at Oxford - which he evokes Brideshead Revisited. A recollection of hedonistic days.
