Swallows and Amazons 1967 edition

Jonathan Cape, London - hardback

This copy dates from the year in which Ransome died.

The "Leading Lights" illustration (bottom right) was eventually replaced by "There was a bang" (see 1999 edition) as it was thought that three night-time illustrations together did not balance the layout of the cover. The 1967 price was 16 shillings. (modern currency 80 pence) Full details of the first edition here.
