Inscription: Signed

Seller ID: 81220


A second impression, though more accurately it is a remainder issue, with "2nd impression" overprinted to make it appear as though the novel was actually selling, in fact the publisher has barely bothered to conceal this, with the novel still advertised at 7/6 to the rear panel of the jacket, and in the "Spring 1937" catalogue which has been retained to the rear of the book.
