Presumed First Edition, no statement at copyright page. An English prep school teacher moves to London, "meets the kind of Bohemians he has visualized, moves into a Chelsea flat, gaudily and theatrically decorated in ultramodern style. He grows a picturesque mustache and beard, buys a cape, a broad brimmed hat, a velvet jacket, green shirts and flowing ties. He becomes a member of the Y to the Nths, a weird, arty, frantically advanced group whose ideas he doesn't in the least understand". Near Fine in Very Good dustjacket, chipped at spine ends.
