There is a pencil "5" to front pastedown, and a previous booksellers pencil price to the verso of the FEP. The text block is still well bound, and the pages have the occasional mark, but otherwise clean and straight. The cloth spine is bumped and sl. grubby. Very good condition. No jacket as issued.

She illustrated the "Eve" books, at about the same time. Eve ran in the Tatler about a flapper who preoccupations of the elite during the deprivations of the First World War. This book has lovely art-deco style illustrations, coupled with Margaret Lavington's gently melancholic verses. A very scarce item for the collector.
