London, Chatto & Windus, 1932
£2,250

A very good copy of a scarce Wyndham Lewis first edition in the original dust-jacket. This was the only work by Wyndham Lewis to be published by Chatto & Windus, as the author was angry with them after they withdrew the book from circulation due to pressure brought to bear by solicitors for Alec Waugh, who considered the book a libellous attack on himself and his character. As a result of this threat almost a thousand copies of the book from the original print-run of 1518 were pulped by the publishers, ensuring its relative scarcity.
