A US first edition, first impression. Uncommon.
WRAPPER : The evocative wrapper on this copy is bright, clean and complete. It is unclipped. The front panel is bright and unfaded, showing gentle rubbing and creasing to spine corners and lower edge. The leading edge of the front panel is lightly rubbed. The spine is clean and unfaded, showing the barest hint of bruising at the head. The back panel is clean and bright. Looks sharp in protective plastic.
BOOK : The book is square and very tight. The boards are clean, the corners are sharp. The spine ends are gently bruised. The pages are clean. No foxing - there is ghosting to the ffep. The closed page edges are sound, if dulled - the top edge is gently flecked. No dog-eared pages. The binding is solid - no cracked hinges. There are no previous ownership inscriptions. A very nice copy in a protected wrapper.
