First edition, first printing. Publisher's first state pink and white cloth with blue titles to the spine, in the John Banting illustrated dustwrapper. An excellent near fine copy, the binding square and firm, the spine a touch toned and with a couple of brown marks. The contents are clean throughout and without previous owner's inscriptions or stamps. Complete with the very near fine dustwrapper that remains without loss or tears with just a hint of fading to the spine. Not price-clipped (7/6 net to the front flap). A very attractive example.
1222 copies printed. (Woolmer 294).
