Published: Methuen & Co. Ltd

Date: 1947

1st EDITION, 1st IMPRESSION. 12.8x 19.3cm red leatherette boards with black titles to the spine. Blue, black and white endpapers. 192pp with a full colour frontispiece, 8 three colour images and numerous black and white images. The book has its original unclipped dust jacket with a 5/- net price. The boards have been well protected by the dust jacket and are clean and bright with only minor rubbing to the spine tips and lower corners. Internally, there is a gift inscription to the front free endpaper. There is a tiny ding to the top edge of the front board that can be felt rather than seen. The dust jacket with the back to front telescope on the front panel is very bright and un-faded especially on the spine although there is a very little light dust staining to the rear panel. There is light rubbing to the spine tips and edges with some very light creasing and minimal loss to the fore edge corners and there are two 3mm tears to the top edge on the back panel. All in all, an extremely good looking copy of this the sixth of the 'Famous Five' books.
