The First UK printing published by Collins, London in 1922. The BOOK is in Very Good++ or better condition. Light pushing at the spine ends. Very minor rubbing at the corners. Some offsetting to the end-papers. Light toning to the text-block. The red lettering to the spine and front cover remains very bright. A few light age related marks to the covers.
