Wrapper : The wrapper on this copy is bright and complete. It has been clipped. The front panel is bright and unfaded. It shows trivial bruising to the top and bottom edges. The spine has - as ever - darkened. It is scuffed at either end - the spine ends have been reinforced internally. The back panel is bright, if a little soiled. It shows trivial nicking - again, internally reinforced - at the corners. Looks sharp in protective plastic.

No foxing. The closed page edges are slightly dulled. The bottom corner of orange title page is detached by 2cm. The binding is tight. No loose pages. There is a neat gift inscription on the reverse of the ffep. An uncommon title.
