First edition, first printing. Publisher's original brown cloth with illustration to the bottom corner of the upper board and titles in gilt to the spine, in the Caney illustrated dustwrapper. Top edge green. With eight full page black and white illustrations by Clifford Caney. A very good copy, the binding firm with a slightly rolled spine, the cloth bright and fresh. The contents, with the odd foxing spot to the margins, more so to the closed text block edge, are otherwise clean throughout and without previous owner's inscriptions or stamps. Complete with the lightly rubbed and nicked dustwrapper that whilst without loss, is toned to the fold edges and spine and has a single piece of tape to the underside. Not price-clipped (9s 6d net to the front flap)
The ninth and final book in the popular equestrian "Jill" series, most of which are scarce in first edition.
