A very good example of the special limited edition of the first part of Wyndham Lewis' trilogy The Human Age, published simultaneously with an ordinary edition of 2500 copies (of which 1000 were destroyed by the publisher). The second & third parts, Monstre Gai and Malign Fiesta, were not published until 1955, in response to a request from the BBC for Wyndham Lewis to complete the work for broadcast.

First edition, first impression, 'Special Edition', number 176 of 225 copies signed by the author; 8vo; publisher's yellow buckram, top edge gilt, others uncut, minor browning to endpapers as usual, spine gently rolled and a just a trace of fading. An unusually fresh copy.
