The third title in the Swallows and Amazons series and one of the most elusive as a jacketed first edition. The book is reasonably firmly bound in the publisher's green cloth lettered in gilt and blind, the extremities are bumped and rubbed, there are a few small tears to the cloth and patches of fading. The text block is age browned with a bookplate to the first blank page, a crossed out name to the top corners of the half-title, slight cracking at points and some scattered foxing. The dust jacket is the original and not price clipped, it has been professionally restored to a high standard, and presents well with only minor toning, grubbiness and crease marks, the restoration is chiefly around the spine area which was split, browned and had quite significant loss.
