Something of a conundrum, because the dustwrapper declares this as the fifth edition, while the title page of the book itself states it is the fourth. There is no hint that the text may have been changed between the editions, so in this case ‘edition’ may just mean ‘impression’. The first edition was issued in 1935. The book was reissued in paperback in the 1980s, but all editions now seem to be out of print.
See below the description from the author’s preface, and extracts from reviews of the book from the dustwrapper flap.
