London: William Heinemann Ltd, 1939. Hardcover. 553p., first British edition, turquoise cloth boards gilt, lacking dust jacket. Endsheets of calendered pink paperstock. A bright sound copy with these flaws: both free endpapers are faintly mildewed round the margins, migration to versos of free sheets, no mustiness. Boards and spine-rims mildly worn with a minute bump to upper cover corner-tip. Paperstock mildly and evenly toned throughout. A quite presentable copy.
