A High Wind in Jamaica by Richard Hughes 1st / 1st 1929
First UK edition published by Chatto & Windus in 1929. This is a very good or better copy. There are small shallow chips to the top and bottom edges of the front panel along with some wear to the top of the spine. The jacket is not price clipped. The book itself is clean and presentable with no foxing or ink. Overall a very good or better copy.
