A mystery story by Barbara Sleigh (1906–1982), author of the ‘Carbonel’ series of books about the king of cats.
Hardback in dustwrapper. 157pp including b/w illustrations. 7.5 x 5 inches approx. (190mm x 130mm).
Some wear and rubbing to dustwrapper, mostly to head and tail of spine and corner tips; dusty. Head of spine turned-in; top edge of front board knocked; upper corner of rear board a touch knocked. Offsetting to endpapers; light age toning to pages otherwise clean; some spotting and marks to page block edges with some encroachment onto page especially the first gathering.
Nonetheless, a particularly nice, clean copy – uncommon.
