Publisher: Nicholson & Watson, London, Brussels, 1947, 1st UK edition, translated by Haakon M. Chevalier. No dustjacket. Ex-lib copy. Cover, in red cloth boards with black titling, is in decent condition with some fading to spine, some bumping to spine extremities and a few light markings to front. There is a Boots Booklovers Library sticker attached. Internally, the book is in generally good condition commensurate with age, tight binding and no inscriptions. There is some light foxing to endpapers and to page block edges and some light tanning to page edges throughout. Remains of torn out Boots library sticker on rear endpaper, however, no library stamps. Small ink mark on bottom page block edge. Fascinating foray into the novel form for Salvador Dali with b&w frontispiece and end illustration specially drawn by Dali for the book.
