Printing Details

First US edition, first printing. Hardback in dustwrapper. 20.5 × 13.5cm, 160pp

Mr Stone likes to be known as Head Librarian with Excal, and dislikes the prospect of retirement. After a brief acquaintanceship with Mrs Springer, he marries her to defend himself against idleness and solitude. Then a foolproof plan strikes him, to introduce the order of the Knights Companion.


The book is in very good condition. The wrapper has creasing along the top edge of the front cover and a scratch running down the spine by the rear joint but is otherwise clean and presentable and now in a protective sleeve and has not been price-clipped.
