Man's Mortality by Michael Arlen 1st / 1st 1933
First edition and first print published by William Heinemann in 1933. This is a near fine copy. The binding is square and firm with only a very little pushing at the spine tips. The contents are bright throughout and without previous owner's marks. It is complete with a near fine original dust wrapper in a very complete state. Not price clipped showing the correct price of 7/6 to the front flap. Overall a very collectible copy.

He addresses fears of the age, including air travel, the inevitability of mass murder in the interests of international peace, and the search for personal happiness.
