London: William Heinemann Ltd., 1956. First British Edition. Item #1226
First Impression. Octavo; blue textured boards, with titles stamped in gilt on the spine; 214pp. A touch of light soil to the text edges, else very Near Fine. The unclipped dustjacket has some minor wear along the extremities, a discreet diagonal crease at the lower corner of the front flap, with moderate soil and some foxing to the spine, rear panel and flap fold, most noticeable on the verso; a Very Good+ example, with the colors still bright and unfaded. The author's first novel, and the first volume in his Malayan Trilogy.
