London, Methuen, 1939. Proof. Paperback. A near fine copy. Presumably an uncorrected proof, though not explicitly noted. However, in Spectrum (I:44) George reports his comparison to the text of the published book and notes some setting differences. He then recounts a tale wherein he was accused of just putting brown paper round a page block, which he denied. The book was then migrated to his collection lest another such encounter occur. So, here we are. I defrock myself, relinquish the tweed and leave the ultimate decision to you. Title written on upper wrap in pencil crayon. Condition is near fine with just a little wear to the covers. [8642, Hyraxia Books].
