See below the description from the dustwrapper flap. 

Under the author’s signature on the title-page is a testimonial from (I believe) a previous owner of the book.  As the handwriting is difficult to read, my interpretation is given below.

The diagonal lines across Victoria Drummond’s picture are a quirk of our scanner, and do not appear on the dustwrapper itself.

The book is long out of print, and now scarce.  One American bookseller is asking £306.65 for his copy, and states ‘may not have a dust jacket.  Might be an ex-library copy and contain writing/highlighting’.  Words fail me . . .
