Coot Club First Australian edition 1949

These editions were printed in Britain and bound in Sydney. They were identical to the standard Cape editions except for:

"Sydney; Australasian Publishing Company in Association with Jonathan Cape" on title page. The normal "Jonathan Cape" at the bottom of the wrapper spine was replaced by a Cape logo. The cloth was a lighter green than the Cape edition and did not have the name embossed on the front.

The original dedication to "The skipper of the Titmouse" remains. Full details of the first edition here.
