First edition, first printing. Publisher’s original blue cloth with black titles to the upper board and spine, in dustwrapper. An excellent near fine copy, the binding square and firm, the cloth a little toned to the extremities as common with Hodder blue cloth of this period. The contents are clean throughout and without previous owner’s inscriptions or stamps. Complete with the beautiful original dustwrapper which is entirely without loss or tears and other than a few marks to the spine is bright and without fading. Correctly priced 7/6 net to the spine. An exceptional example, scarce in this condition.
