First edition, first printing. Publisher's original grey cloth with red titles to the upper board and spine, in the Bertram Prance illustrated dustwrapper. Map endpapers drawn by David Morton. Title page vignette and 8 full page illustrations in black by Bertram Prance. A better than very good copy, the binding square and firm if a little bumped at the spine tips and corners. The contents, with some isolated spotting at the gutter of three pages are otherwise clean and bright throughout. Complete with the lightly rubbed, price-clipped dustwrapper that has a barely visible but quite large closed tear to the bottom left of the upper panel and some fading of the spine. An attractive example.
The eighth book in the Lone Pine Series.
