London: Ward, Lock and Co., (1945).
First edition. Bookplate of author and book collector Eric Quayle on the front pastedown, slight sunning at the crown else fine in very near fine dustwrapper with a very small chip at the crown and a slight splash on the rear panel. The first book of the Poldark series about 18th Century Cornwall, and the basis for the excellent BBC miniseries. A very scarce title, a cheaply made wartime production that seldom appears in fine condition.
