OFFERING: A remarkable specimen of the true first edition in its unopened original state before public release, with an author signed, September 1934 presentation made to Llewellyn Jones, the literary editor. Its folded pages haven't been slit and it has been preserved in its plain unlettered, sewn self-wrappers state prior to binding in cloth for the publisher. Carefully preserved, the book's primary wear is thumbing to some unopened pages and slight soiling to the self-wrappers. The illustrated work is culturally significant for its early frank discussion of male sexual inadequacy and impotence and its description of medical and surgical treatments.

CONDITION: Presentation: Excellent. / Pages: Chiefly unopened, primary wear is thumbing to unopened pages to page 152; bright and clean, except for an insect spot on p. vii; textblock edges dusty. / Wrappers: some soiling and thumbing, top corner bumped. / Binding: solid and reliable, second and third gatherings with light gutter separation.
