RANSOME, Arthur. WE DIDN'T MEAN TO GO TO SEA. London: Jonathan Cape (1937). First edition. 351 pp. 8vo., dark green cloth stamped in gilt and blind. Map endpapers have a faint ouch of foxing - else the book is very clean internally. A few small spots to fore-edge, not affecting text. In a good dust jacket, spine darkened, with a 1/2 inch chip to top of spine above title, and a few small closed tears to rear panel. Jacket is lightly age-toned at edges. The Swallows adrift - a wonderful children's adventure at sea.
