Roland Camberton; pseudonym of Henry Cohen; illustrated by John Minton

SCAMP, London: John Lehman 1950

First edition, first printing. Publisher’s original orange cloth with gilt titles to the spine, in dustwrapper. An excellent near fine copy, the binding firm and square, the contents clean throughout and without previous owner’s inscriptions or stamps. Complete with the lightly rubbed and nicked John Minton illustrated dustwrapper which is entirely without loss with only a single short closed tear to the rear panel and some toning to the extremities. Not price-clipped (9s 6d net to the front flap). A scarce title, especially so in this condition.

Note
The author’s first, of only two novels and winner of the 1951 Somerset Maugham Award.
