First UK edition, first printing, and first hardcover edition. Publisher's original dark grey boards with green titles and silver logo to the spine, in dustwrapper. A better than very good copy, the binding square and firm with a little bumping at the spine tips, the cloth bright and fresh. The contents, with some spotting to the closed text block edge, and a bookseller's paper label to the bottom edge of the front pastedown, are otherwise clean throughout and without inscriptions or stamps. Complete with the lightly rubbed and nicked dustwrapper that has small chips to the spine folds and three small pieces of tape to the underside but is otherwise remarkably clean and bright. Not price clipped (10/6 to the lower front flap). An attractive example of a scarce title.

First published in America by Dell in 1959 as a paperback original, this UK first edition is the first publication of the novel in hardcover.
