A near-fine first edition, in the original binding. The first and last flyleaves have been embossed with the previous owner's seal. In a very good, price clipped dust jacket, with fading on the spine and a small tear to the back cover.
After months of slaving in a solicitor's office, Freddie Widgeon seems set to escape, thanks to some oil stocks recently bought from an American, Thomas G. Malloy. However, the mysteries of high finance are many and strange and Freddie's investment is about to bring him unexpected results.
