Symons in April-June 1935, after Cassell and Co. Ltd pulled out, is not present here. “Having no distribution organisation [Symons] did not sell very many, which is why this swan song is now so scarce” (Desmond Flower, “The Book Collector’s Quarterly, 1930-1933” in The Private Library, third series, volume 1, Spring 1978, pp.39-48). ¶ Some spotting on fore-edges, endpapers, and on wrappers; very good, unmarked set.
