A bright UK first edition, first impression.
Wrapper : The wrapper on this copy is bright, unfaded and complete. It is unclipped. It shows a trivial hint of insignificant rubbing to the corners of both panels, inconsequential bruising to the spine ends and a barely perceptible dulling to the white lettering on the spine. 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 an insignificant hint of trivial bruising to the spine ends. The pages are clean. The closed page edges are fresh. No foxing. No dog-eared pages. The binding is tight - no cracked hinges. A very nice copy in a protected wrapper.
