London: Collins, 1969. Hardcover. 8vo. 159pp. First edition. Blue textured paper boards with gilt spine titles. Light bumping at spine heel, three tiny spots of soiling to textblock top, else very near fine. In an unclipped very good (+) jacket with three 1/3" closed tears along top edge, light soiling top perimeter, and a diagonal crease to front flap. The first British edition of Baker's elusive second book, following 1967's "The Peregrine." A nice copy.
