First edition, first printing. Original black cloth with gilt titles to the spine, in dustwrapper. A very good copy, the binding square and firm, the cloth lightly rubbed to the extremities and the corners just slightly bumped. The contents, with faint spotting to the text block edges and endpapers, and a neat gift inscription to the front free endpaper, are otherwise clean throughout. Complete with the original Charles Mozley illustrated dustwrapper which is lightly rubbed and nicked and just slightly frayed to the hinges. Not price clipped (18s net to the front flap).
The sixth Marlowes book, and unusual in being the only book of the series that centres primarily on male characters.
