Wrapper : The evocative period wrapper on this copy is bright and complete. It is unclipped. The front panel is bright and unfaded. It is slightly dulled with inconsequential rubbing at the corners. The spine is clean though dulled. It shows light bruising and rubbing to the ends. The green lettering on the spine has faded. The back panel is sound, showing a touch of rubbing, nicking and scuffing to the edges. Looks sharp in protective plastic.
Book : The book is square and very tight. 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 gently toned. There are no loose or dog-eared pages. The binding is solid and without cracked hinges. There are no previous ownership inscriptions. A nice copy in a protected wrapper.
