First edition, first printing. Original red cloth with black titles to the spine, in dustwrapper. Illustrated front endpapers. Illustrated throughout in black and white by Stuart Tresilian. A lovely near fine copy, the binding firm with light bumping at the corners, the cloth clean and fresh. The contents are otherwise clean throughout and without stamps or inscriptions. Compete with the lightly rubbed and nicked illustrated dustwrapper that is faded to the spine and spotted to the flaps and rear panel. The dustwrapper has been printed on the reverse of an earlier jacket for 'Tassel-Gentle' by Pamela Frankau, a common occurance due to World War II paper rationing. Not price clipped (8s. 6d. net to the front flap). An attractive example.
The ninth title in the 'Lockett' series.
