First edition, first printing. Inscribed by Lester Piggot. Publisher's original black cloth with silver titles to the spine, in dustwrapper. A better than very good copy, the binding square and firm with a little softening at the spine tips. The contents, with spotting to the prelims are otherwise clean throughout. Complete with the near fine lightly creased and spine-faded dustwrapper. Not price-clipped (£12.95 net to the front flap).
Inscribed by the champion jockey in blue ink on the half title "To Dick / Best wishes / Lester Piggot". With 4,493 career flat racing wins in Britain, including a record nine Epsom Derby victories, Lester Piggot is widely regarded as one of the greatest flat racing jockeys of all time.
