London: Secker & Warburg, 1938. First Printing of the First UK Edition. There was no US edition of this title. A Fine tight copy in a Near Fine unclipped dust jacket with some gentle soiling, a small spot at the bottom edge of the front panel and a tiny chip at the heel of the spine. Probably the most important memoir by a member of the expatriate community in Paris in the 1920s and a very uncommon title especially with the rare dust jacket.

His ownership signature is on the flyleaf along with his pencil notations. He has also annotated the text. Laid-in is a 5 x 8 notecard with Senhouse's listing of Contact Editions accompanied by a t.l.s. from author Frank McShane thanking Senhouse for his efforts to find out the whereabouts of McAlmon. an uncommon copy of an uncommon book.
