Wrapper : The wrapper on this copy is bright, clean, complete and unclipped. The edges show inconsequential rubbing. The spine is - unusually - unfaded. Looks very sharp.
Book : The book is tight. There are no previous ownership inscriptions. The boards are unfaded and the corners are sharp. There is a touch of trivial bruising to the spine ends and slight rubbing to the lower edges. The text block is clean. The closed page edges are - as ever - slightly toned. There are no loose or dog-eared pages. The binding is tight, the hinges are solid. An attractive copy in a protected wrapper.
