First edition, first printing. The author Gareth Adamson's copy. Original beige cloth with titles in red to the spine and upper board, in dustwrapper. A very good copy, the binding firm and square, the cloth a little rubbed and toned. The contents, with Gareth Adamson's bookplate to the front pastedown, a previous owner's inscription to the front free endpaper, and spotting to the text block edges, are otherwise clean. Complete with the rubbed, nicked, creased dustwrapper that shows some quite heavy dustiness, particularly to the rear panel, and residue from tape (no longer present) to the underside. The spine is also a touch faded. Not price-clipped (7s. 6d. to the bottom of the front flap).
A collection of short stories from the highly regarded travel writer (and older brother of Ian Fleming), this example from the collection of the author Gareth Adamson who along with his with Jean is best known as the creators of the 'Topsy and Tim' children's book series.
