London: Victor Gollancz, (1943).
Hardcover. First English edition. Fine in slightly soiled, very good or better dustwrapper with a couple of tiny tears. Publisher's file copy, stamped "Archive Copy" on the title page, and docketed in pencil on the front panel of the jacket. The author's classic collection of short essays that originally appeared in *Harper's Magazine* or *The New Yorker.* White's good sense, close observation, keen sense of the absurd and essential humanism are almost unparalleled in 20th Century American literature. The English edition is exceptionally uncommon. *OCLC* locates nine copies, only three in the U.S.
