First edition, first impression of the author’s first hardback book; first issue in the blue binding and with the dust jacket priced at 10s 6d. With a review slip from the publisher’s laid in, giving the price at 10/6 and the publication date at 15 August 1955, also including a sticker giving notice of Rich & Cowan’s new address at Stratford Place, W1. This unusual price-clipping of a review copy may be due to the publisher’s pre-publication uncertainty about the pricing.

Octavo. Original blue boards, titles to spine in silver. With the dust jacket. Partial tanning to endpapers. An excellent copy in the very gently rubbed jacket with faint soiling to the rear panel, and price-clipped.
