First edition, first printing. Publisher's original grey paper-covered boards and grey cloth spine, titles printed in black on white paper labels to the upper board and spine, in dustwrapper. An excellent near fine copy, the binding firm and square, the contents with a little spotting to the prelims otherwise clean and without previous owner's inscriptions or stamps. With 48 tipped in illustrations in colour and black and white by the author, all of which are present as called for and in fine condition. Contemporary newspaper review of this title loosely laid in. Complete with the original pictorial dustwrapper which is a little rubbed and nicked to the extremities with a few light marks and some tiny chips to the bottom of the spine. A superb example.
Rare in the dustwrapper.
