Charles W[illiam] Westron

This book was first published in 1919 by Heath Cranton, so this is probably the second edition. The jacket design is known from Blampied's album of dust jackets, which contains the front panel only and is shown below. It doesn't indicate any publisher but later editions published by Collins with the same illustration have identified the publisher.

Charles William Westron wrote three novels starring Salty. The other two were entitled More Salty (Collins, 1924) and Salty Ashore (Collins, 1929). He also wrote a book on double-entry book-keeping (Pitman, 1924).
