A bright UK / US first edition, first impression.
Wrapper : The wrapper on this copy is bright, unfaded and complete. It is unclipped. It shows a hint of insignificant bruising to the spine ends and to the top edge of the front panel. Looks 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 a hint of trivial soiling to top edge of the cloth spine. The pages are clean. The closed page edges are sound - the top edge is insignificantly dusty. No foxing. No dog-eared pages. The binding is tight - no cracked hinges. A very nice copy in a protected wrapper. .
