Issued four years before the UK first. A US first edition, first impression.
Wrapper : The wrapper on this copy is bright, clean, unfaded and complete. It is unclipped. It shows light chipping to the main body of the front panel and a touch of surface creasing at the head of the spine. Looks sharp. Book
: The book is square and very tight. There are no previous ownership inscriptions. The boards are clean and are unfaded. The corners are sharp. There are slithers of fading at each of the spine ends. The pages are clean. The closed page edges are lightly toned - the top edge is a trifle dusty. No dog-eared pages. The binding is tight - no cracked hinges. A very nice copy in a protected wrapper.
