Book Description

An excellent near fine copy, the binding firm and square, the contents clean throughout and without previous owner’s inscriptions or stamps. Complete with the lightly rubbed and nicked John Minton illustrated dustwrapper which is entirely without loss with only a single short closed tear to the rear panel and some toning to the extremities. Not price-clipped (9s 6d net to the front flap). A scarce title, especially so in this condition.
