London, Rich & Cowan, 1955. First Edition. First Impression. A near fine book in a very good jacket. A little wear to the spine tips, publisher's price clip with printed price overlay. Some tape ghosting to the (likely supplied) jacket. Block edges darkened. This is the first issue book in blue boards. The jacket carries no advert for World of Chance. The World of Chance jacket is a later issue, but there are more than one (probably two) states of the first issue jacket, this is likely the second state. The first state of the first issue was priced 10s 6d, this state has a printed priced 6s 6d (with a clipped price). Cover art / illustrations by Peter Rudland [5579, Hyraxia Books].
