First paperback edition, first printing. Published by Penguin in London, 1948. This is a near fine copy. The green soft cover is slightly sunned, with some very slight toning in spots. There is slight wear at either side of the spine, which itself is slightly creased. The internals are clean and free from inscriptions. The text blocks are mostly bright and white throughout, though slightly toned due to poor paper stock. The hinges are markedly intact, though the rear has some slight separation. Overall, this is a near fine copy.
The green soft cover is slightly worn at the corners, with one dividing crease to the spine. The top and tail are slightly worn also. There is one small brown spot to the rear panel.
