A Book of Ships by Charles Mitchell
King Penguin number K3. First edition published September 1941.
Card covers, with price obliterated (by Penguin Books) on rear cover. [Note: the first six King Penguins were published with either overlapping boards (like a normal hardback book) or with flush-cut thick card covers.]
No dustwrapper (as published). [Note: the first editions of King Penguins up to K46 (1948) did not have dustwrappers. When (if) they were reprinted after 1948 they had wrappers.]
Covers clean, apart from a small mark on the back. Spine a bit creased, with hinges rubbed in places.
Slight foxing to the first few text pages. Colour plates and other illustrations clean.
The photographs form part of this description.
