First edition, first printing. Original orange cloth with black titles to the spine, in the Leslie Stead illustrated dustwrapper. A superb very near fine copy, the binding square and firm with slight bumping at the spine tips and a thin strip of fading to the extreme upper edge. The contents are clean throughout and without previous owner's inscriptions or stamps. Complete with the fine original dustwrapper which remains bright and without loss or tears. Correctly priced 7s 6d net to the front flap. A stellar example in entirely original condition of this fragile wartime production, rare thus.
A Miss Marple biblio-mystery.
