Thick red on black matte non-pictorial jacket has spine sunned to tan, with lesser sunning to inner margins of panels and nicks at head; short tear to one outer corner and to lower edge of front panel; VG+ otherwise. Hanley, a Liverpudlian of Irish descent, went to sea at age seventeen. He jumped ship in Canada in 1917 to join the Canadian army, with which he fought briefly in WWI. This, his second and best-known novel, is about a young boy who suffers brutal neglect and exploitation. When he goes to sea as a thirteen year old stowaway, he is subjugated to homosexual abuse. The 1931 first trade edition was expurgated, and the 1934 second edition was succesfully prosecuted for obscenity because of its homoerotic content and its suggestive dust jacket. Gibbs A6e. This American edition has textual differences from all the British editions. ; Octavo
