The 32nd exploit. A UK first edition, first impression.
Wrapper : The evocative period wrapper on this copy is bright, unfaded and complete. It is unclipped. The front panel is clean and unfaded, showing light wear at the top edge. The spine is unfaded. It is rubbed and lightly scuffed at the spine ends. The back panel is sound. It is very gently soiled and shows light wear to the top and bottom edges. Looks sharp.
Book : The book is square and very tight. There are no previous ownership inscriptions. The boards are clean and unfaded, the corners sharp. It shows a hint of trivial bruising to the spine ends. The pages are clean. The closed page edges are slightly dusty and slightly toned. No foxing. No dog-eared pages. The binding is tight - no cracked hinges. A very nice copy in a protected wrapper.
