Early [second] edition. Publisher's original red cloth with black titles to the spine, in dustwrapper. A better than very good copy, the binding square and firm, the cloth bright and fresh. The contents are clean throughout and without inscriptions or stamps. The closed text block edge is a little spotted and toned. Complete with the very good rubbed, nicked and creased dustwrapper that has a few short closed tears and tiny chips at the extremities. Not price-clipped (publisher's 4/- sticker of the 3/6 net printed price to the lower front flap). Scarce in dustwrapper.
An Anthony Havilland thriller, this being the first Rich and Cowan printing, published around one year after the 1937 Cassell first edition. (Hubin).
