  1. Hello Barbara

    We too have a copy with this unusual dustwrapper - which is the true 1st edition, this one or the more common one? Heather - Peakirk Books

  2. Hi Heather
    I assumed this was the true first but if anyone knows different please let me know. I've listed it as a first as I assumed it was but would happily change the listing if it is incorrect. Best wishes, Barbara

  3. Just received some information from Roger at Aucott & Thomas -
    There is no order of precedence and so long as the book says published 1948 on the title page (this one does) then it is a first edition.
