London: William Heinemann, 1933. 8vo, lxxii, 469 pp. With 12 plates after the original engravings by Gooden. Original brown morocco, ruled in gilt. All edges gilt. Minor insect damage to top edge of the lower board. A pleasant reading copy First trade edition, previously issued in a limited edition with original engravings by Gooden here in offset reproduction. Presentation copy inscribed by Marsh: “To dearest Mary with all love and blessings from the proud author Eddie”. Who Mary was is a mystery as Marsh’s circle of close friends was entirely men and he was never married. Mark Lasner suggested it might be Mary Hunter the great patroness of the arts.
