An uncorrected UK proof ( Advanced Reader's Copy ). Comes with a loosely laid in letter stating " As you know, we didn't produce book proofs for Saturday for the book trade. However we did produce a small quantity for the author, agent and for publicity... " This is a bright, clean copy without previous ownership inscriptions. The covers are fresh and unfaded. There is a trace of bruising to the upper corner of the back cover. There are no creases to the spine, which is solid, unfaded and intact. The pages and closed page edges are clean. The binding is solid - no cracked hinges or loose pages. Given the fragility of proof copies, this is in very nice condition.
