Quick facsimile dustjacket printed out (I knew I created all those facsimiles for a reason!). Will keep me going until/if I ever find a jacketed copy at a price I'm willing to pay!

N.B. If you wondering about the blue, the '51 has a different shade of blue than any of the others, presumably for reasons only known to the printers (or at least some of them are the lighter blue - I actually wonder if two batches of jackets were printed).

Finally got a 1951. Have all of them from '42 onwards now (and only the '51 doesn't have a jacket). £270 from a dealer, which is probably not a bad deal based on what these seem to go for these days / how scarce they are. Decent nick, no bumped corners, etc, but a bit of foxing to the endpapers.

Congrats to this lucky find Stu - it’s on my wish list as well...

Not extremely rare or valuable, but have been looking for these copies for quite a while. Very excited to finally have these in my hands!
