176 pp, 8" H. Gray cloth with silver lettering on spine. The first edition (first printing) of the author's second book, a collection of nine stories. Contents: The Loneliness of the Long-Distance Runner; Uncle Ernest; Mr. Raynor the School-Teacher; The Fishing-Boat Picture; Noah's Ark; On Saturday Afternoon; The Match; The Disgrace of Jim Scarfedale; The Decline and Fall of Frankie Buller. The title story, which was made into a film in 1962, "is an ambitious tale about a boy in Borstal who, set to run in a race, seizes a magnificent and foolproof opportunity to show his defiance of authority. It is perhaps as profound a study of the rebel mind as has ever been written." Areas of light browning on endpapers, light toning to pages, browning to edges of text block, minor wrinkling and slight fading to bottom edge of spine, tiny dent on bottom edge of each board, slight browning on spine. Dust jacket has light browning to edges, spine and flap-folds; scattered tiny foxing marks on rear panel; very light edge wear/wrinkling with a few very small edge tears - mainly at top edge; protected in a mylar sleeve.
