First UK edition, first printing. Publisher's original olive green cloth with black titles to the upper board and spine, in dustwrapper. A very good copy, the binding square with rubbing and bumping to the spine tips and corners. The contents, with some occasional spotting and finger marks to the margins, and a small bookseller's label to the rear pastedown, are otherwise clean throughout and without inscriptions or stamps. The closed text block edges are spotted. Complete with the fine original (but supplied) dustwrapper, which has some very light rubbing to the extremities but is otherwise without fading, loss or tears. Correctly priced 7/6 net to the spine.
Published in the US as 'The Matilda Hunter Murder', this is the first instalment of Keeler's 'Tuddleton Trotter' mystery series. (Hubin)
