Book Description
1st Printing, 14.2 x 22.2 cm brown cloth with gilt stamped titles to the spine. Top edge brown, black and white pictorial endpapers, 183(1)pp with colour frontispiece and black and white illustrations. With original unclipped dust jacket priced at 10s. 6d.There is a little mottling to the rear board, fading to the bottom 1 cm of the spine and a tiny 2mm dot on the spine. The book has just a little foxing to the very edge of the text block and internally the half title page has a previous owner’s name and address but otherwise the book is very clean. The scarce unclipped jacket, which is now protected in a clear removable cover [not shown], is a little dust stained and nibbled at the edges. There is a 1 cm grease spot on the slightly toned spine and marks from previous tape repairs on the rear of the jacket, on the spine tips and the top front fore edge. Later paper tape is still present on the fore edge joint and at the foot of the spine. Marks from the tape are visible on the top of the rear panel. There is minor loss and a little chipping along the top edge and 4 closed tears of under 1 cm at the top of the rear panel and a couple of smaller ones on the front and a 1 cm tear on the bottom edge. All in all a very nice 1st Edition copy in a scarce original dust jacket.
