First edition. 8vo. 255pp. Dark pink boards with gilt lettering to spine. Pink pictorial dustwrapper. A near fine copy with unmarked boards. A couple of fox spots & a small pink ink price to front endpaper. The very good dustwrapper has a tiny chip to top right corner of the back panel and foxing to rear panel. None of the usual fading to pink spine. Original price of 8s6dnet on front flap with ink cross above it with new price on front endpaper (as stated above). An uncommon title.
