First edition of Aldington's debut first world war novel with its striking Paul Nash designed jacket. Near fine black cloth publisher's binding, offsetting from tape to the first blank and offsetting from newspaper articles to the title page and verso of half-title. Externally the jacket is bright and shows well, an old tape mark runs up the front flap and up the lower panel of the jacket; the rear flap may have been trimmed slightly with the loss of about a centimeter of unprinted paper. The combination of Aldington's prose and Nash's book design is a potent one.
