Boodle Hardback, dark red/brown covers, maybe 1st UK edn (states inside 1st printed 1934 - but 1st edn should be blue - so maybe a special library edition?), very clean for an ex-library book (I think stickers have been removed from covers) but several pages professionally strengthened/re-attached. 13 stories including The Noble Sportsman.

The Uncritical Publisher, first published Empire News November 12 1933 as The Smashing of Another Racket. This book is about a vanity publishing scam and it is believed that Hodder & Stoughton might think their readers would identify them with it, so its never been included in UK editions. Leslie Charteris was inspired by a true incident;
The Noble Sportsman. This story is often omitted from later paperback versions, at least in the UK.
