1st Edition



Published by Martin Secker (publisher to ‘The Richards Press’) 1939

The book is sound with red boards & spine virtually unmarked. The board edges & corners show some light rubbing & whilst the edges are without knocks, the lower board corners have been lightly   bumped. The spine shows a shallow crease towards the base, the spine ends are creased & somewhat rubbed. The black lettering to the spine is very clear. Please see the attached scans.

Internally, the pages are clean & unmarked as are the end papers. The last four leafs have been roughly separated: tears have been closed & the edges aligned. The page edges show some light toning, rather more so along the top edge, & a few marks: the leading edge is a little rough cut. There is no inscription.  

The dust wrapper, seemingly price clipped diagonally but leaving a (new) price, has lost a chunk towards the top of the rear cover & spine, the latter also has a couple of short tears. A small chip at the top of the front spine fold leads into an approximately 4 cm tear down the front cover. There are relatively short edge single tears top & bottom of the rear cover, another at the top of the front cover. There is some creasing at both ends of the spine, the rear cover is noticeably marked. Please see the attached scans.

The wrapper is in a removable plastic sleeve.

Scarce book & particularly in its original dust jacket.

Whilst considerable attention is devoted to providing an accurate description, buyers should bear in mind the book’s age & the commensurate degree of wear & tear sustained. Consequently, some very minor faults, not otherwise detailed, are to be expected.  

Overseas customers welcomed - obviously p&p costs will be greater than shown above & I will be happy to provide an estimate. Please note that settlement from overseas buyers is to be made only by PayPal. 

UK payments made by personal cheque are to be drawn in favour of Q. Payne.

I am selling the book to reduce the size of my collection so no returns, thank you.

Book posted at buyer's risk by 2nd class post. A certificate of posting available if required. Postage adjusted for multiple purchases.

Please contact me as soon as possible if any problem arises.
