A SIGNED UK first edition, first impression.
Wrapper : The wrapper on this copy is bright, clean and complete. It is unclipped, showing the price £2.00 on the inside flap.

The back panel is sound, showing inconsequential toning at the edges. Looks sharp in protective plastic. Book
: The book is square and very tight. There are no previous ownership inscriptions. The boards are clean and unfaded. The corners are sharp. The spine ends are gently bruised. The pages are clean. No foxing. The closed page edges are just a tiny bit dusty. There are no dog-eared or loose pages. The binding is solid - no cracked hinges. This copy has been SIGNED
