We previously bought and/or sold this book in the following, or similar, condition:
A UK first edition, first impression - with a complete number string which includes the number 1.
The Wrapper: The wrapper on this copy is bright, unfaded, complete and unclipped. Looks very sharp.
The Book: The book is square and very tight. There are no previous ownership inscriptions. The boards are clean and unfaded, the corners sharp. The pages are clean. The text block and closed page edges are - as is so often the case - toned. The binding is tight - no cracked hinges. No remainder marks. A lovely copy in a protected wrapper.
