1952 - The Curve and the Tusk

THE CURVE AND THE TUSK was first published in America in 1952 by Houghton Mifflin Company, and was first published in Britain in 1953 by Collins.

I do not own a copy of a Houghton Mifflin edition, which for some unknown reason, is rare, especially with dust jacket

I found the photo below on the Internet
