Very light wear to the book; much more to the tips, corners, and edges of the jacket which chipped from the upper spine tip across the front panel, numerous creases, minor surface losses to the spine, price-clipped. First and only printing. Comprised of A Question of Upbringing; A Buyer's Market; The Acceptance World. The first British three in one edition of Dance. Published in an edition of 3,000 copies, on Dec.3, 1962, eleven months after the initial US omnibus which was followed by three more comprising the entire 12 volume work. Powell credits the US omnibus volumes with the commercial success of Dance. The British omni, however, never took off and this is the only one published by Heinemann. Scarce thus. Lilley A.15a 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Hard Cover. We specialize in the works of and about Anthony Powell.
