London, Michael Joseph, 1974. First Thus. Hardback. First printing of the Michael Joseph edition. A near fine copy, the binding square and firm, the contents clean throughout and without previous owner?s inscriptions or stamps.

Originally published in 1935 by George Newnes as Planet Plane under the name John Beynon. This posthumous re-issue is quite scarce. Cover art by John Price [8675, Hyraxia Books].
