acknowledgements. Black coloured boards with gilt coloured titles to the backstrip. Illustrated dustwrapper (wraparound), with black coloured titles to the front panel and backstrip. "In these fourteen stories two young writers give a dazzling display of the power and scope of the short story form." -- from the front fold over panel blurb, and, as they themselves say, on page 7, "These short stories have been written in the knowledge that the form is in decline, but in the belief that this is due to no fault inherent in the form. The short story deserves, seldom receives, the same precise attention to language as that is given normally only a poem. This book represents a joint attempt, through demonstration of the form's white technical range, to draw attention to a literary form which is quite undeservedly neglected." Minor rubbing of the backstrip edges and book corners. A few marks to the panels. Light browning and scattered foxing to the textblock edges with age toning of the pages. Grubby mark to the lower edge of the free front end paper. Chipping to the dustwrapper corners and backstrip edges.

Sunning and rubbing of the dustwrapper panels. There is a vertical crease running the full length of the front fold over panel. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. [12], 13-204 pages,.
