George Allen & Unwin, 1948. Revised and expanded edition

Condition: Good. Hardback This is an ex-library book with a small label on the spine, and one each on the inside front and back covers. There is a small stamp on the title page. The front and back hinges have loosened slightly. Otherwise the binding is tight, the text is clear and there is mild tanning throughout. Not too bad a copy
