8v0. 352pp. Rose-colored cloth printed in black on the spine. The spine is significantly sunned for about an inch at the top, The dustwrapper lacks a piece near the top of the spine corresponding to the sunned patch; it is well rubbed and rough along the edges, and the front flap is nearly detached at the fold. A facsimile of the missing spine tip has been inserted beneath the jacket to give a good appearance. The jacket is price-clipped. The front pastedown has a first prize certificate for attendance at St Mary's, Chinley, in 1945. Overall a good copy in a good dustwrapper of a scarce title.
