Printing Details

First edition thus (first printing in the Uniform Edition). Hardback in dustwrapper. 18.5 × 12cm, 415pp.

Adam's Breed (first published in 1926) won the James Tait Black Memorial Prize for fiction and the Femina Vie Heureuse prize for best English novel. It tells the story of a British-Italian waiter, a member of the Lost Generation disillusioned by life during and after World War One, who becomes a hermit.


The book is in very good condition for age, with a curious previous owner's inscription to the ffep (To the Lady who waited...). The dustwrapper has some minor nicks and scuffs and some surface grubbying but is also in good condition.
