8vo; Has the publishers name (Liveright only) on the spine and the dust jacket illustrations of card players on a yacht. Only 3047 copies of the first edition were printed. Between 1927 and 1931 (the date of the second printing) the design of the book's dust jacket changed twice: first the design was changed from mosquitoes to card players (second issue) and then in 1930, after Horace Liveright lost the presidency of Boni and Liveright, the name of the publisher on the dust jacket had to be altered, as in the present third issue.
