First edition, first printing published in 1938 by Putnam, London. 78pp, Original publisher's blue cloth with gilt stamped titles and rough cut text block. The boards are very clean and fresh, the corners still sharp, the colour of the cloth is deep and the titles are fresh and bright. Light foxing to the prelim's and a previous owner's inscription otherwise a very fine copy, the heavyweight pages fall flush, as though it has been rarely read. The original dustjacket priced at 7/6 is a Vg copy, light chipping to the spine tips and hinges, the yellow jacket is age soiled and the spine has darkened. These fragile jackets are very seldomly found on this title of which there are no other copies currently listed for sale anywhere online.
