First edition, first printing. Signed by the author. Publisher's original blue cloth with silver titles to the spine, in dustwrapper. A better than very good copy, the binding square and firm, the cloth clean and the titles bright. The contents with a little faint spotting to the prelims are otherwise clean throughout and without previous owner's inscriptions or stamps. Complete with the rubbed and nicked dustwrapper which is toned to the spine. Not price-clipped (16s net to the front flap).
Signed and underlined by John Braine in black ink on the title page. The author's second book, uncommon in signed state.
