Sold

Hardcover. First edition, ordinary edition. Copy number 219. Octavo. Bound in full paper over boards with morocco spine label titled in black. Pages toned, slight paper loss at the spine ends, very good or better. Bookplate of Linda Porter, wife of Cole Porter, on front pastedown. At the time of their wedding in 1919, Cole and Linda Lee Porter were living in Paris. An early cycle of prose works about the War (sometimes identified as a novel), presumably informed by Cocteau experiences as a Red Cross ambulance driver. Of interest, the paper used for the binding appears to be identical to the paper used by the publisher Cape and Smith for the binding of the first edition of William Faulkner's novel *The Sound and the Fury.*.
