Decorated paper-covered boards with printed paper title labels; dustjacket; 94pp. 1" x 1/4" coffee-colored stain to margin front free endpaper (and extending very faintly onto half-title); else a tight, clean and attractive copy. In original printed dustwrapper, complete and just lightly soiled and worn, but with old kraft-paper reinforcements to verso. Presumed later issue jacket, with remnants of an applied price label on spine panel. Withal, a quite pretty copy of Aldington's second published poetry collection, a cycle of imagist meditations on the First World War written while he was a lieutenant in the British Army.
