A UK first edition, first impression.
Wrapper : The wrapper on this copy is bright, unfaded and complete. It is unclipped. The white and yellow coloured insets on the spine are slightly toned. Looks very sharp.
Book : The book is square and very tight. There are no previous ownership inscriptions. The boards are clean and unfaded, the corners sharp. It shows an inconsequential hint of bruising to the spine ends. The pages are clean and bright. No foxing. The closed page edges are fresh. No spotting. No dog-eared pages. The binding is tight, the hinges are solid. A very nice copy in a protected wrapper.
