New York: William Morrow & Company, 1935.
Hardcover. First American edition. A bit of sunning on the boards, very good in very good dustwrapper with small chips at the spine ends and on the front panel. Inscribed by Bagnold to her husband, Sir Roderick Jones: "To my Darling - (& what luck that he has read it already!) Nov. 5. Guy Fawkes, 1935 - given (...on the night that Jacob so unfortunately came...)." Bagnold's first book, her account of her experience as a nurse during WWI. Originally published in the U.K. in 1918, it was finally issued in the U.S. to capitalize on the success of her 1935 novel *National Velvet*. Laid in, but not attached, is the bookplate of the important collector of World War I literature, B.D. Maurer.
