First UK edition, first printing. Original red cloth with lettering in silver to the spine, in the Youngman Carter wraparound design dustwrapper. A better than very good copy, the binding firm and square, with a very slight crease to the spine. The contents, with some slight dustiness to the text block fore edge, are otherwise clean throughout and without previous owners' stamps or inscriptions. Complete with the original dustwrapper which is lightly rubbed and creased to the extremities, and with small nicks to the hinges. Not price-clipped and correctly priced (25s net) to the front flap.

Translated from the French by Robert Baldick.
