First edition, first printing. Hardback in dustwrapper. 22.5 × 14.5cm, 454pp
A collection of 35 short stories from H E Bates, ranging from 1926 to 1961, and whilst some are reminiscent of his other works such as the Pop Larkin chronicles, they display a range of characters and emotions that make H E Bates a master of the short story.
The book is in good solid condition, with foxing to the pages edges. The dustwrapper is chipped to the edges but remains attractive and is now within a protective sleeve.
