Wife Apparent (Lady in Waiting), Yates, Dornford
4 Wife Apparent (Lady in Waiting)
Yates, Dornford
London Ward Lock & Co. 1956 First Hardcover Very Good+ Very Good+ Jacket 
First Edition in original dustjacket. Stated "First Published 1956" on tipped in copyright page (with printed explanation: "Not until this book and its dust-cover had been printed was it discovered that another novel was shortly to appear bearing the title, LADY-IN-WAITING, which I had chosen. In these days of expensive paper and high production costs, to "scrap" one whole edition was unthinkable. So we have done the best we can, and I must beg for the indulgence of my customers. The new title is by no means inappropriate. Indeed, it only means that my lady-in-waiting will no longer play the title-role. - Dornford Yates." Clean unfaded red cloth boards with black decoration on cover, black lettering on spine. No fading or fraying. Binding is tight & square, no cracking. Pages and edges are clean. One tiny very faint spot to front free endpaper; no names, writing or bookplates.
