First edition, first issue of Graves' autobiography, with Siegfried Sassoon's poem on pp. 341-343. Sassoon objected to Graves' unauthorized use of his poem and caused the publishers to withdraw the book. According to the bibliographer, approximately 250 copies survived with the original text, which was canceled from the rest of the edition. Higginson A32a 8vo, illustrated, original cloth, dust jacket designed by Len Lye. A very fine copy, virtually as new, and extremely rare thus. (Inventory #: 23169)
