First edition, first printing. Original red cloth with black titles to the spine, in dustwrapper. Illustrated endpapers. Illustrated throughout with black and white (occasionally accented with blue) drawings by Eileen Soper. A near fine copy, the binding square and firm, the contents, with very faint offsetting to the endpapers, are clean throughout and without previous owner's inscriptions or stamps. Complete with the very good lightly rubbed, nicked and creased dustwrapper which has some short closed tears to the spine tips and front panel, and a longer closed tear to the rear flap fold, which have been repaired to the inside with small pieces of archival tape. Not price-clipped (7s 6d net net to the front flap). An attractive example.
The fifteenth adventure of The Famous Five.
