An uncorrected UK proof ( Advanced Reader's Copy ). This is a bright copy, without previous ownership inscriptions. The covers are bright and unfaded with just the tiniest of tiny creases at the corners - insignificant. There are no creases to the spine, which is solid and intact. The pages and closed page edges are clean. The binding is solid - no cracked hinges or loose pages. Given the fragility of proof copies, this is in very nice condition.
