Putnam, 1954, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Good+ — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with spotting to the reverse. Pages lightly age-tanned with scattered spotting throughout.

From the cover: “Midway in this Century of the Common Peer, Britain’s leisured class is that of Common Man. His holidays are organised for him in Camps, modelled on the Public Schools for the hell of it and Hollywood for the fun of it. He sits in the House of Lords. He reads The Daily Mirror, with its exciting portrait-gallery of contemporary gods and goddesses. On all these and many other diversions of the day, our observant Peer turns a searching but benevolent eye.
