London, Michael Joseph, 1951. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. The jacket has had restoration work. I mention this first as we don't sell restored jackets as a rule. The present copy came as part of a collection, and we are offering it cheaply. The book is very good with some pushing and softening to the spine tips and a slight lean. Owner's inscription to front pastedown. The jacket restoration is to the top inch or so and fairly extensive. Some rubbing and chipping elsewhere. Cover art by Patrick Gierth [8408, Hyraxia Books].
