A UK first edition, first impression. A scarce title.

WRAPPER: The wrapper on this copy is actually a reprint wrapper, although it sports the same design as the that of the first edition. It is priced at 3/6 - and this appears on the inside flap and on the spine. The wrapper is unclipped. The front panel is bright, clean and unfaded. It shows trivial rubbing at the top and bottom edges and slight nicking at the corners. The spine is sound. The illustration on the spine is gently dulled and there is a touch of rubbing and nicking to the spine ends. The white back panel is sound. It shows trivial rubbing and scuffing to the edges and corners. Looks sharp in protective plastic.

BOOK: The book is tight. There are no previous ownership inscriptions. The boards are unfaded and the corners are sharp. There is a touch of trivial bruising to the spine ends. The spine is very, very slightly sunned. The text block is clean. The closed page edges show isolated spotting. There are no loose or dog-eared pages. The binding is tight, the hinges are solid. A nice copy in a protected wrapper.

Publisher: Cassell, 1925

Condition: Very Good ++. Wrapper: Very Good ++
