First edition. The correct first printing, printed by Wolff and with the publisher's monogram on the copyright page.  pp. Thick octavo, original beige cloth stamped in black and gold. Pictorial (map) end papers by Robert Graves. Introduction by Leonard Bacon. A nearly fine copy in a slightly worn dust jacket which has a few small scratches, fraying and small closed tears at the spine tips, and a thumbnail-sized chip from head of spine panel. The dust wrapper is the correct first issue, priced at $3.00 and with no reprinting statement (reprints designate their status on the front flap). A well above average copy of a thick and heavy volume which tends to survive in poor condition.
