Death of a Hero by Richard Aldington 1st / 1st 1930

Death of a Hero by Richard Aldington 1st / 1st 1930


Paris: Henry Babou and Jack Kahane (1930). First unpurgatated edition. It is in near fine condition and retains its original box. Both volumes are very clean and unmarked to the wrappers. Volume two has a strip of browning ot the top of the wrapper. Overall a near fine set.

Death of a Hero was initially published in the UK a year earlier but to heavy censorship. This edition is completely uncensored. Rather than change the text he allowed asterixes to be put across key parts of the text for the UK first edition. But this edition has no censorship at all. 

A rare two volume set and particularly so in such nice condition
