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