The Childermass, Section I
The first volume of Wyndham Lewis' The Human Age
First edition, hardback bound in the original yellow cloth with printed red titling to spine. 21.5 × 13.5cm, 322pp.
The first volume of Wyndham Lewis' unfinished epic The Human Age which follows the adventures of two Englishmen, Sattersthwaite and Pullman, presumably killed in the Great War, as they posthumously explore a weird purgatorial afterlife while awaiting admission to something called The Magnetic City.
Whilst the book is in strong readable condition, the yellow cloth boards are heavily marked with damp-staining and nicked to the edges. Internally though, the pages are clean and the binding secure.
