London: Cape, 1957

8vo, pp. 160. Original black boards, lettered in white to spine. Illustrated dustwrapper. Some foxing to preliminaries, tape residue to front pastedown, presentation inscription to ffep. A very good copy in a very good, price-clipped dustwrapper, with a little tape residue to edges of flaps.
