Item specifics

Format:

Hardback w/Jacket

Author:

H.E. Bates

Special Attributes:

1st Edition

Published by Readers Union 1938. A selection of some 30 short stories by the author.

No dust wrapper.

The book is sound with green decorated upper board with plain lower board all showing a few fairly minor markings. The board edges & corners display little rubbing. The spine, somewhat darkened, shows a rubbed raised ridge whilst the spine hinges & ends have also been a little rubbed: the ends the latter displaying a degree of creasing. The red lettering to the spine remains reasonable clear though there has been rubbing across the word ‘TALES’ on the spine. Please see the attached scans.

Internally, the pages are clean & unmarked as are the end papers though free end papers are noticeably toned. The page edges are clean, the top edge appears to be finished in red. The front pasteboard bears a signature at the top edge close to the spine hinge.

The book is in a removable protective cover.

This book was to have been issued this book earlier by Cape but one of the stories led to a legal dispute that delayed publication until 1940. Reader’s Union dropped this tale & printed this edition beforehand.

Quite a reasonable copy.

Whilst considerable attention is devoted to providing an accurate description, buyers should bear in mind the book’s age & the commensurate degree of wear & tear sustained. Consequently, some very minor faults, not otherwise detailed, are to be expected. 

Overseas customers welcomed - obviously p&p costs will be greater than shown above & I will be happy to provide an estimate. Please note that settlement from overseas buyers is to be made only by PayPal. 

UK payments made by personal cheque are to be drawn in favour of Q. Payne. Settlement from overseas buyers is to be made only by PayPal.  

I am selling the book to reduce the size of my collection so no returns, thank you.

Book posted at buyer's risk by 2nd class post. A certificate of posting available if required. Postage adjusted for multiple purchases.

Please contact me as soon as possible if any problem arises.
