Item specifics


Hardback w/Jacket

Special Attributes:

1st Edition, Signed

John Arlott.

Of Period and Place.

London, Jonathan Cape, 1944.

First edition and the first printing.

Signed twice by John Arlott. Firstly on the half-title page which is the opening page of the book as there are no endpapers (which appears to be as usual with this title) along with the dedication 'For Julian, master of the pregnant pause, John'. Arlott has also signed on the title page - 'John Arlott' and crossed through his printed name.

The book is in Good condition. The dustwrapper has an old and relatively light water mark to it and it shows some uneven browning (mainly to the extremities), but it too remains in Good condition.

Our Books

All of our books are understood to be UK first editions and first impressions unless specifically  stated above.

We try to describe all books as accurately as possible and we use the following terminology to describe our books. Alongside these general grading descriptions we do try to point out even the most minor faults in the individual book listings.

Fine:  This is our highest grading. At Fine our books will be unread and have no significant flaws or defects whatsoever. Where a dustwrapper has been issued with the book, this too will have no significant flaws. Very minor flaws (if any) will be mentioned. 

Near Fine:  At Near Fine our books and/or dustwrappers (where issued) may have one or two very small flaws. These may include such minor defects as rubbing or very light creasing to the edges of the dustwrapper, a slight spine lean, heavier page edge browning or a small nick to the dustwrapper. Overall, the book remains in excellent condition.

Very Good: At Very Good, our books will show signs of having been carefully read.  The flaws mentioned above in Near Fine will be more significant here in the Very Good category. Books may have a more significant spine lean, show more edge wear and heavier page edge browning, possibly have one or two closed tears to the wrapper (where issued), and possibly show some heavier creasing. At Very Good, the book remains a clean and presentable copy.
