A bright US first edition, first impression.
WRAPPER: The period wrapper on this copy is bright, clean and complete. It has been clipped. The front panel is bright, showing a trivial hint of wear to the top edge. The spine is unfaded and bright. It shows a tiny, insignificant touch of rubbing at the head. The back panel is bright, if very slightly soiled. The top edge of the back panel is rubbed and very slightly nicked. Looks sharp in protective plastic.
BOOK: The book is square and very tight. The boards are very clean, the corners are sharp. The spine ends are inconsequentially bruised. The pages are clean. No foxing. The closed page edges are unmarked - they are toned. No dog-eared pages. The binding is solid - no cracked hinges. There are no previous ownership inscriptions. An attractive copy in a protected wrapper.
