([London]: Nonesuch Press, 1933). 240 x 150 mm. (9 3/8 x 5 3/4"). 86 pp.,  leaf. No. 426 OF 1,000 COPIES.
Publisher's grained quarter suede over paper boards, flat spine with titling in gilt along length, all edges untrimmed. In original (somewhat worn) brown printed dust jacket. Dreyfus 87. Tiny bump to one corner and insignificant paper tear to another, dust jacket with chip to tail and split along one fold, faint offsetting to free endpapers from binder's glue, otherwise a pristine copy internally.
This is the third work by Irish novelist, critic, and dramatist George Moore (1852-1933) published by the Nonesuch Press, and according to an advertisement quoted by Dreyfus, it was "originally conceived as a general introduction to his 'works'; but it grew in his mind to the stature of a separate book."
