First edition, first printing. Published by William Heinemann Ltd in London, 1947. This is a near fine copy. The dust wrapper has some very slight wear at the spine tips and corners. There are handling marks throughout and some residue to the rear panel. It has not been price clipped and shows the original 8s 6d net price. The boards are with a slight band of toning to the bottom edge and the corners are bumped. The text blocks are free from foxing though toned due to poor paper stock. This copy has one small inscription to the front prelim, dated Christmas 1948. Overall, this is a near fine copy.

Eight of these stories originally appeared in an earlier collection entitled The Basement Room. Among those new to this collection are “A Drive in the Country”, “The Lottery Ticket”, and “The Other Side of the Border”, the latter two of which were excised from later collections.
