This is the very scarce Volume III of these memoirs, published a few years after the first two volumes, and many times less common. This is the US first edition, printed in Great Britain from British sheets (it was first published in the UK by Hamish Hamilton), but with the McGraw-Hill imprint. A fine, unread book in full blue cloth with negligible rubbing to the lower edge and a bit of foxing to the foreedge only, in a bright (purple) near fine dustjacket (not price-clipped - $15) with a very slightly faded spine on which there is a small ding, and light foxing to the flaps. Here is the chance to complete your set! Please note: this is a large, heavy book and may require extra postage for priority or international shipping. Bookseller Inventory #
