Copies of this edition are available, but one must be prepared for the occasional ex-library copy with its resultant damage. This early edition ends interestingly with the words "The Swallows and Amazons went down again into their camp". Four other sentences were added in 1933 to give the ending "Isn't it a blessing to get home?". Full details of the first edition here.
