First edition, first impression. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper: “To Peter Math, grand old salt (and silly old grumpus!) and to my dear God-child, Lisa, in sacred trust, this slender, action-packed, volume, from their two swell friends, Terry Southern and Frank Bloeth”, this last name being written in a separate hand. “Peter Math” is renowned American writer Peter Matthiessen, who died in April 2014.

Octavo. Original red boards, titles to spine gilt. With the Nicolas Bentley-designed dust jacket. One very small mark to front board, faint spotting to endpapers but an excellent copy in the slightly toned dust jacket.
