First Edition. Contemporary novel of "the Shires and the Welsh Marches, Mayfair and Bloomsbury, and, as an incident, the theater of war in German East Africa. Its characters range from county magnates to men of letters and the humbler citizens of a back street in London." Nice dustjacket artwork that almost appears to be chromolithographic. Near Fine in Very Good dustjacket chipped at top spine end, very light stain to spine area.
