At All Costs Signed by Richard Aldington 1st / 1st 1930
London: William Heinemann Ltd (1930). A first UK edition and limited edition copy, one of only 275 printed. This copy is signed by the author Richard Aldington to the limitation page. This is copy number 100. It still has its scarce acetate clear jacket. Albeit the jacket has loss along the top edge and is missing large portion to the back panel. The book itelf has rubbing to the spine and corner ends. There is browning to the front free end paper and a previous owner has written his name to the same page. Overall its a very good copy.
A short novella set in the trenches. Aldington himself saw action on the western front for almost three years and he wrote about his experiences through his poetry and his novels including the anti war novel ‘death of a hero’. A rare title with the original acetate jacket.
