Michael Crichton writing as John Lange. A US first edition, first impression.
Wrapper : The wrapper on this copy is bright, clean and complete. It is unclipped. The front panel is bright and unfaded, showing an inconsequential hint of bruising to the top edge. The spine is unfaded and shows a tiny, insignificant touch of bruising to the ends. The back panel is sound. Looks sharp in protective plastic.
Book : The book is square and very tight. The boards are clean, the corners are sharp. The spine ends are gently bruised. The pages are very clean. No foxing. The closed page edges are sound - the leading edge is dulled. No dog-eared pages. The binding is solid - no cracked hinges. There are no previous ownership inscriptions. A nice copy in a protected wrapper.
