About this Item

First Edition. 8vo, publisher’s original bright blue cloth gilt lettered on the spine, in the original bright blue dustjacket decorated in yellow, black and white. 203 pp. An unusually fine copy. The book was not produced to high standards and is typically not found so well preserved as this copy. Neither the book nor jacket exhibit any wear or even evidence of use. There is no fading to the bright blue and yellow of the jacket. There is a touch of age spotting to the edges or rear panel of the jacket. A beautiful copy. FIRST EDITION IN EXCELLENT CONDITION of this collection of 36 stories by the eternally popular English poet/scholar/translator/writer/Classicalist and novelist. Many of these stories were gathered from Punch to which Mr. Graves had been contributing. The title is taken from a Majorcan term meaning to fall off a ladder or damage one’s reputation. Thirty-five of these pieces are humorous, a side of Mr. Graves’ talent that has been often underrated. Bookseller Inventory # 24597
