A slight fading on the front as per the photos. Beige and black dust jacket in very good condition featuring the bold woodcut by GEORGE PLANK. Slight browning and a few chips and cuts to the spine. The DJ has the $2.00 price and stamped with the Hawthornden Prize across the spine.

Published by Doran on 16 January 1927 at $1.50 in 500 copies bought from William Heinemann with DJ. Reissued at $2.00, also printed by Heinemann in the same from as the first edition but containing the correction incorporated by Windmill Press. The bibliography on the back panel of the DJ ends with Sissinghurst where as the front flap mentions Family History so the reissue was probably 1933. [Cross & Ravenscroft-Hulme A13c]

Quite a beautiful and of course, a unique addition for any serious VSW Collector.
