An INSCRIBED UK first edition, first impression.
Wrapper : The evocative wrapper on this copy is bright and complete. It is unclipped. The front panel is bright, clean and unfaded. It shows slight rubbing to each of the corners. The spine is unfaded and fresh. It shows a tiny, tiny touch of rubbing to the ends. The white back panel is bright and fresh. Looks sharp in protective plastic.
Book : The book is square and tight. The boards are bright and clean. The corners are sharp. The pages are clean. No foxing. The closed page edges are sound - they are gently toned and the top edge is slightly dusty. No dog-eared pages. The binding is solid - no cracked hinges. There are no previous ownership inscriptions. This copy has been inscribed - To James, with best wishes, Ernest Dudley. A very nice copy in a protected wrapper.
