London: James Barrie, 1951. First Edition, First Impression. Octavo, original green cloth cloth, gilt titles on spine.  pp. Light fading to cloth along spine, a bit more pronounced at head of spine panel. Light darkening to endpapers, and an old bookseller's ticket tipped onto the front free endpaper, (G.Ken Chapman Ltd - Chapman was a SF & F Specialist Bookseller who operated in London from the 1950's - 1970's.) The price ticket is removable but it's kind of a nice throwback to a gentler, quieter time in the world of book collecting. A very good, attractive copy in the original pictorial dust jacket, slightly ragged small chip at head of spine, price corner clipped. Item #312009
