Macmillan and Co., Ltd: London, 1938.  The Scholar's Library, first printing.

Inscribed by Wright to Geoffrey L. Bickersteth, translator of Dante's The Divine Comedy and The Paradiso. Affixed to the half title is a 125 word ALS from Wright to Bickersteth that accompanied the book: "The book has just appeared in its original sin: the errors in facts, solecisms and awkwardness of expression would have been fewer if all my corrections in proof had not been jettisoned through the general editor's slackness & incompetence".

Occasionally heavy pencil marginalia, presumably Bickersteth's.  A very good copy with Bickersteth's bookplate and some rubbing to spine tips.
