London, Hodder & Stoughton, 1956. First edition, first impression. Hardback. A near fine copy. Hodder's file copy, with their code on the jacket spine and a stamp on the endpaper. The author's name was incorrectly spelt on the title page and a note has been made to indicate this for future copies (there's a chance that this could therefore be a first state, if anyone should care about states for this particular book). A little light edge wear, but nothing of note. [9659, Hyraxia Books].
