8vo, XXXVI, 453pp. Hardcover in bottle green cloth with gilt titles on the firm spine in excellent condition and a partially price-clipped pictorial d/w in very good condition with minor chipping on corners and a soiled spine, now protected in clear archival covering, text and all twenty-eight illustrations in excellent unmarked condition with beautiful coloured map endpapers as well. Another of the series usually called the ‘Swallows and Amazons’ series, a remarkable book, arguably now regarded as a classic in children’s literature. The four Swallows (John, Susan, Titty and Roger) again meet up with the two Amazon Pirates (Nancy and Peggy) in a wonderful summer adventure.
