Death in Ecstasy. Penguin #249.
Ngaio Marsh:

Death in Ecstasy.

Harmondsworth: Penguin Books, 1940. First Penguin edition. 248pp + (8) adverts. Pages tanned, with occasional slight spotting. In the classic green and white livery, very clean, with faint browning to spine, and slightly marked at the head. Conserved in its original dust jacket: The dust jacket is in very good order, faintly toned, with a few brown marks to the Jaeger advertisement on the back and a 5mm closed tear to the bottom of the lower joint. The first owner has, as invited, excised from the corner of the rear flap the 'reading case label': this, trimmed and crumpled, has been found inside the book. However, he has also neatly stuck the flaps down onto the inside of the covers, so my description of the covers themselves is necessarily based on an imperfect view, looking down the back (as is my photograph). Very nice copy. Very Good+ in very good dust-jacket.
