With slight textual differences from the published book. One of 50 copies ( Rees 1A 1a ). An uncorrected UK proof ( Advanced Reader's Copy ). This is a solid copy without previous ownership inscriptions. The covers are sound and unfaded, showing light rubbing along the edges. There is a crease to the upper leading edge corner of the back cover. The background colour on the spine is faded. The spine is creased. The pages and closed page edges are clean, if very slightly dulled. The binding is solid - no cracked hinges or loose pages.
