SEARLE, Ronald (illustrator) and Geoffrey WILLIAMS (author). How to be Topp. London; Max Parrish, 1954.

8vo. Original maroon linson boards lettered and decorated in gilt to spine, printed doodle endpapers, in pictorial dustwrapper; pp. [ix], 10-105 + [i]; with a host of illustrations by Searle; externally and internally fine, save a small and early inscription to front free endpaper, in an uncommonly fresh and crisp, price-clipped dustwrapper.
First edition. Searle's masterful follow-up to Down With Skool! (Max Parrish, 1953). Molesworth runs riot at St. Custard's and has a wealth of advice for his fellow sufferers on how to "Akquire Culture and Keep the Brane Clean", "How to be Topp in French" and "How to Succeed as a New Bug".
