A bright SIGNED UK first edition, first impression.
WRAPPER : The wrapper on this copy is bright, unfaded, clean and complete. It is unclipped. Looks sharp in protective plastic.
BOOK : The book is square and very tight. There are no previous ownership inscriptions. The boards are clean and unfaded. The corners are sharp. The spine ends are inconsequentially bruised. The pages are clean - and not toned ( a fault that commonly afflicts this title ). The closed page edges are bright and without spotting. There are no dog-eared or loose pages. The binding is solid with no cracked hinges. This copy has been FLAT SIGNED by Dick Francis to the title page. A handsome copy in a protected wrapper.
