First edition, first printing. Presentation copy inscribed by the author to his literary agent, Carlton Cole, “who expertly piloted this book thru perilous publishers shoals and brought it safely into port with crew and cargo intact. This despite hazards on the high seas of book-commerce which would have scuttled any ordinary man. My Thanks, Jim Moran. New York City Oct 29 1954” (front free endpaper).

Small quarto. Original red cloth, titles to spine and decoration to front board in black. With the dust jacket. Illustrated in colour and black and white by Roger Duvoisin. Extremities a little rubbed. A bright copy in a lightly rubbed jacket with a few tiny chips and nicks. Excellent.
