First edition, first printing. Signed by the author. Publisher's original red cloth with gilt titles to the spine, in the Osbert Lancaster illustrated dustwrapper. A lovely fine copy, the binding square and tight, the contents clean throughout and without previous owner's inscriptions or stamps. Complete with the unusually bright dustwrapper which other than being price-clipped to the front flap is without loss or tears. A very attractive example, tough in this condition.
Signed by the author in blue ink on a plain label which is fixed to the dedication [in this case quotes from Sir Henry Newbolt and Lord Macaulay] page. The author's fourth book.
