Originally published in the UK as 'After Many A Summer' in 1939 by Chatto and Windus. This 1965 reprint in 12mo (4&1/2' x 7&1/2') lifts design & dimensions of the Harper mass market edition issued around same time. It features terrrific Seymour Chwast illustration often called Pop Art, though in this instance Chwast had done something much different and better to my mind than what is usually called Pop Art. In very good mildly edgeworn dustjacket with marginal tanning/darkening. Not price clipped. Original price of $1.95 is on the creased front flap. Navy blue cloth with gold lettering on spine & front board. Teal end pages. Binding gives toward leaning but remains sound. Tanned textblock edges top & fore-edge.
