J.M.Dent & Sons. Ltd. London.,1939.
First Edition of the author’s first book. Illustrated with 8 mono plates. Many copies were pulped during the war making this a scarce title. In a letter to a collector written in 1951 Davies reported having no spare copies of this book and that his best guess was that no more than 600 were in existence. Original blue cloth with blind stamped device to upper board, titles to spine gilt, top edge stained blue. With the rare dustjacket. Spine a little dull but an excellent copy in the nicked and mildly tanned dustjacket with a single tiny chip at one corner.
