This is a First Edition by Eyre and Spottiswoode. The copyright date is 1945 and the First Published date is also 1945. The book was printed during the rationing of paper during World War Two. Because of the need to conserve paper, most publisher's entered into an agreement known as the: "Book Production War Economy Agreement" of 1942. The Publishers Association had strict guidelines governing the production of books during that time. Among other things, the strict guidelines limited: print size, words per page, and blank pages for the books that were printed. The "...War Economy Agreement" logo and a statement of intent; "This book is produced in complete conformity with the Authorized Economy Standard," appear on the second page along with the publishers information.
"Thunderhead" was written by the same author who had penned the popular novel "My Friend Flicka."
The 311 page book has a cloth covered pliable "hard back." The corners are worn. The pages are only lightly tanned by time. No handwriting or marks are found, One page has a small tear at the top of the page which does not interfere with the print. The book is 8 3/4" x 5 3/4" and in Good to Very Good Condition.
