Advance Copy stated on the half title page. Book retains its fragile tissue wrapper and also a dustwrapper. Unusual thus. A UK first edition, first impression.
Wrapper : The wrapper on this copy is bright and complete. It is unclipped. It is a little too long for the book and as a result the top edge is bruised and lightly soiled. The spine is rubbed and soiled. The tissue wrapper is toned but complete. Looks sharp. Book
: The book is square and very tight. There are no previous ownership inscriptions. The boards are clean, bright and unfaded. The spine shows ghosting from the tissue wrapper. The pages are clean. The closed page edges are bright - there is a single spot on the leading edge. No dog-eared pages. The binding is tight - no cracked hinges. A very nice copy in a protected wrapper.
