London: Boriswood (1932). 3rd imp.
This controversial novel about a stowaway youth aboard a tramp freighter was seized and destroyed by British authorities upon publication. This edition contains re-written passages "expurged" from the first edition. A very good copy in orange boards, small water stain to front board, good jacket with only minor edgewear, browning to spine, small closed tear. With the penciled ownership signature of Brian Reade on endpaper. Young 1694.
