First edition, first printing. Publisher's original blue cloth with black titles to the spine, in dustwrapper. A very good copy, the binding firm but with several punctures to the cloth at the bottom of the spine, the cloth otherwise fresh and bright. The contents with a previous owner's bookplate and shelf number annotation to the front pastedown, with spotting to the prelims and closed text block edges. Complete with the rubbed and nicked dustwrapper that has suffered the same puncture wounds to the spine but it otherwise quite attractive. Correctly priced 2/6 net to the spine (this book was one of the publisher's "entirely new novels for half a crown"). scarce in dustwrapper.
