0. 1930. A Mediterranenan Journal. London, Duckworth, 1930; 206 pp, [ + 1blank leaf ], with frontispiece from a drawing by the author, double-page route map, sketch map on one page of text, and three plates; publisher's blue cloth, illustrated dust-wrapper designed by Henry Lamb; ligh fading along top and bottom edges of boards and spine, a few tiny spots om rear endpapers; dust-wrapper price-clipped, a little darkened, minimally spotted, and a little rubbed at extremities, and chipped with loss at head of its spine, the loss extending to a maximum of about one inch from the top down one side of the spine and otherwise much smaller, losing half the letter "h" at the end of "Waugh";. A very good copy of the first impression of the first edition of a book extremely hard to find in fine condition or with a good dust-wrapper. The fading at the top of the spine corresponds to the obviously old chip in the dust-wrapper, which has since been protected with (unattached) transparent film and an (unattached) backing of old nearly-matching cream-coloured paper. Neither the film nor the backing paper are in any way attached to the wrapper or the book. A very desirable copy.
