Letters from a Lost Uncle (from Polar Regions).
Eyre & Spottiswoode 1948 - FIRST EDITION, the text in facsimile of a typescript with illustrations by Peake, use of colour in one instance, ff. [66], foolscap 8vo, original yellow cloth, lettered and with a design by Peake on backstrip and front cover, spine slightly cocked, top edge with a few tiny spots, free endpapers with very faint tape offsetting from previous covering, illustrated dustjacket with nick at head of backstrip panel, very good. The printed price on the dustjacket flap has been cancelled by the publisher and re-priced beneath 3s 6d, marking this the second state as with all available copies. Copies were subsequently withdrawn at the request of Peake, who was dissatisfied with the quality of the reproduction from his original.
