Doctor Book first edition 1933 GA 281

After searching for nearly 10 years I have been fortunate to obtain the missing Doctor Book from my collection. They were issued for 24 years in total starting in 1933 and ending with the 1966 edition except for the period between 1940 to 1949 inclusive.
I have had all 24 years of books for a quite a time now but the first edition, in 1933, was issued in two versions making a total of 25 books!
The 1933 edition was issued firstly as GA281 and again later in '33 as GA281A.
GA281 is the rarer one of the two which I did not have until today!
The differences are that GA281 has a mixture of black and white with color illustrations.  Also a couple of pages are different between the first print and the second.
So I am over the moon that at last I have the full set. Pics of GA281 below. Pictures of the other books I have posted previously.
