A bright UK first edition, first impression.

Wrapper: The evocative period wrapper on this copy (artwork by Hookway Cowles) is bright, unfaded and complete. It is unclipped - showing the price 8s6d on the inside flap. It shows a trivial hint of gentle rubbing to the spine ends. Looks very sharp.

Book: The book is square and very tight. There are no previous ownership inscriptions. The boards are clean, very bright and are unfaded. The corners are sharp. It shows an insignificant hint of trivial bruising to spine ends. The pages are clean. The closed page edges are sound - the top edge is dulled and spotted. No dog-eared pages. The binding is tight - no cracked hinges. A very nice copy in a protected wrapper.
