We previously bought and/or sold this book in the following, or similar, condition:
A bright, very well preserved UK 1970 reprint.
The Wrapper: The wrapper on this copy is very bright, is clean, UNFADED and complete. As with almost every other copy of the 1970 edition that I have seen, it has been clipped and re-priced by the publisher. Looks very sharp in protective plastic.
The Book: The book is square and very tight. The boards are clean and unfaded. The corners are sharp. The pages are clean and fresh. No foxing. The closed page edges are bright. There are no dog-eared or loose pages. The binding is solid - no cracked hinges. It has an ownership inscription on the ffep - hence the Near Fine description. A superior copy in a protected wrapper.
Publisher: Heinemann, UK, 1970
