First edition, first printing. Publisher's original blue cloth with yellow titles to the upper board and spine, in dustwrapper. With a colour frontispiece and several full page illustrations in black throughout the text by C. H. Chapman. A better than very good copy, that would be fine but for some spotting to the closed text block edges. The binding is square and tight, the cloth fresh and bright. The contents are clean throughout and without previous owner's inscriptions or stamps. Complete with the orignal dustwrapper that has a few small nicks at the fold corners but remains bright and without fading. Not price-clipped (9/6 net to the front flap).
