Sm. 8vo., Second Impression, with numerous photographs throughout, neat contemporary inscription on front free endpaper; blue cloth, upper board [only] lettered in black, a near fine copy. The eighth Observer book, but unnumbered in the series. First published in 1942. The binding is something of a puzzle. The front board is lettered in black in the series typeface but the backstrip is unlettered. On close scrutiny the endpapers (on which the inscription is dated 1944) are slightly different to the text stock - which argues a variant production binding. It seems that such a binding - with 'Warne' at the foot of the front board rather than the backstrip - is known to been employed by the Aeroplane Photo Supply Company, sometime of Toronto. Some copies of this binding have an APS label on front paste-down but this is not present here. We are indebted to Mr. Paul Lister for this information. In any event, extremely scarce, albeit without dustwrapper. N° de ref. de la librería 17859
