London, Methuen, 1935. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. A very good copy. The first issue of the jacket and book. Currey has no proirity between the first two issues with ads dated 535 and 835 (May, 1935 and August, 1935). It would seem logical that the first batch of books to have ads inserted would be those dated 535 and the later batch being 835, there is however nothing to assert that given the publication date of October. Personally, I would suggest that the 535 state would the preferred one. The main text block is otherwise indistinguishable. The jacket is complete with moderate edgewear, head of spine crushed with some tears and creasing. Forecorners and lower tip similar, but to a lesser extent. Prelims foxed a little. A slight lean and some bumping to the spine tips. All in all a respectable copy that's rarely found in fine condition. Cover art by Eric Fraser [8864, Hyraxia Books].
