FIRST EDITION, 8vo, pp. 304. Original red cloth boards, spine lettered in gilt, dustjacket printed in green and red. Spine a bit sunned, dustjacket – probably supplied – lightly dustsoiled, a touch of wear at corners and ends of spine panel, top of spine panel reinforced internally with tissue-tape. Bookplate of Olive and Geoffrey Holland to front pastedown.
A fragile jacket, more often found damaged, restored, or much dirtier. The fading of the spine underneath the jacket suggests it was either stored separately or supplied for this copy at some point in the past.
