The book was previously published in a shorter version in 1942 in the UK and titled THE GREATEST PEOPLE IN THE WORLD, thus the US edition is the better text. The new pencil price and rubber stamp on the jacket of this copy may have been done for copies for the Canadian market. In any event, a very nice copy of this uncommon early H.E. Bates title.
