First edition, first impression. Octavo, pp 280. Bound in green cloth covered hard boards and in the original dust jacket, unclipped (18s. net). This is the first issue with “a fire at the piano-works almost every year, it seemed to be a good way of balancing the books" on p272. Following a libel trial, this section was removed from subsequent printings.
The book is in Very Good + condition, square and sharp, no markings or inscriptions internally though there is some spotting to the blank prelims and blank rear pages. The jacket is also VG+, a little wear at the spine ends. A pretty copy.
