New York: Alfred A Knopf 1926 First Edition thus Hardback with dust wrapper Near Fine Worn 
No 156 of a limited First Edition of 3000. top edge gilt 322pp. Wrapper (now protected in removable cleat acetate sleeve) has considerable edge wear and chipping, and some loss along top edge. 322pp. Printed on laid paper, and bound by the Tilestone Holingsworth Company, Hyde Park, Massachusetts. Jonathan Wild (1683 1725) was perhaps the most famous criminal of London and possibly Great Britain during the 18th century, both because of his own actions and the uses novelists, playwrights, and political satirists made of them. He invented a scheme which allowed him to run one of the most successful gangs of thieves of the era, all the while appearing to be the nation's leading policeman. He manipulated the press and the nation's fears to become the most loved public figure of the 1720s; this love turned to hatred when his villainy was exposed. After his hanging at Tyburn in 1725, he became a symbol of corruption and hypocrisy. 195029

For all in scorn of the wintry weather,
And heedless quite of the howling storm,
My books and I are alone together.
