THE STEEL CROCODILE
Slight 1/16" to 1/8" lean; first page (right endpaper) shows glue traces where pocket was removed (see last scan.) Library stamp on title page and top page block; no writing or marks. Very light wear to spine-ends and corners of book. The library had taped a plastic DJ protector to the book which took most of any wear and has been discarded (but there are glue remnants on endpapers front & back - see last scan.)
Photo-reprint of 1970 British hardcover (title changed to The Electric Crocodile.) No printed price.
The Steel Crocodile, by D. G. Compton. I haven't read this, and the best summary or teaser for this I can find are excerpts from a review by Algis Budrys (in Galaxy June 1970):
