First edition. This was the second novel in the Swallows and Amazons series and is as at least as scarce as the first.

Octavo (196 134 mm). Finely bound by Root, London, in mid-20th-century tan half calf, spine gilt in compartments with blue morocco inlay and two morocco labels (one brown, one burgundy), marbled sides with double gilt rules, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt. With the original cloth covers and colour map endpapers bound in. Illustrated frontispiece, and numerous full page and vignette illustrations in the text. Ownership inscription. Corners and sides slightly rubbed, spine somewhat darkened though with the gilt still bright; an excellent copy.
