Recently added to the site is this copy of the US, illustrated edition of Memoirs of a Fox-Hunting Man.

Keynes does not describe this book as a separate publication in his bibliography, but in his description of the English illustrated edition (A30d) he notes that a “limited edition” of 1500 copies with Nicholson’s illustrations was published in New York in 1929 by Coward-McCann. That edition is the book shown here.

Interestingly, as can be seen, the book was issued with a slipcase, something that I have never seen before and as far as I can gather is quite a rare find if still present with the book.

In this particular case the dust jacket is in very poor condition and has since been covered with a protective sleeve to prevent further deterioration.
