Original palest grey linson boards lettered in dark green, preserved in pictorial dustwrapper; pp. [vi], 7-183 + [i]; illustrated with 6 full-colour plates by Leslie Stead; a very good fresh copy with just a touch of browning to very extremities of boards and light scattered foxing to edges of book block, internally very fresh and clean without internal inscriptions, in a near fine, unclipped dustwrapper (8/6) with a trace of light dusting, one very minor later crease to bottom edge of lower panel, and a tiny and neat ink stamp and date to bottom of front flap.
First edition. Biggles and Ginger are marooned in a Mexican village with a bunch of diamond thieves, and are forced to battle with cactus, prickly pear, and snakes.
