First UK edition, first printing. Original dark blue cloth with gilt titles to the spine, in dustwrapper. A beautiful fine copy, the cloth very clean but with a little ghosting to the spine from the dustwrapper, the contents clean, bright and tight throughout. Complete with the fine original dustwrapper which is ever so lightly rubbed to the extremities. Not price-clipped (7/6net to the front flap and along the edge of the rear flap). An exceptional copy, rare in the dustwrapper.
The author's third novel, but the second to be published in England. (Goldstone & Payne A3c.)
