London, Methuen, 1950. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. A near fine copy, in a very good jacket. Inscribed by the author E.V. Rieu from Olaf Stapledon. Uncommon thus. Rieu was a poet, and helped created the Penguin Classics series. Some chipping to the corners and a little loss to the spine tips, spine a touch toned. A nice copy. [8893, Hyraxia Books].
