Hamilton, Patrick


London: Constable. 1953


First edition, first printing. Original blue cloth with silver titles to the spine, in dustwrapper. Dark blue top-stain. A very good or better copy, the binding clean and square, with some bumping at the top of the spine. The contents are without inscriptions or stamps, the text block spotted and a little tanned to the fore-edge and endpapers. Complete with the very good or better original dustwrapper which is a little rubbed and creased with several tiny nicks and closed tears to the extremities and a few thin pieces of tape to the underside. Unusually the dustwrapper retains it's pink colour to the spine. Not price-clipped (12s 6d net to the front flap). An attractive example of the last book in the "Gorse" trilogy.
