An uncorrected UK proof (Advanced Reader's Copy). This is a bright, clean copy without previous ownership inscriptions. The covers are fresh and unfaded. There are no creases to the spine, which is solid, unfaded and intact. The pages and closed page edges are clean. The binding is solid - no cracked hinges or loose pages. The proof wrapper is clean, bright an d unfaded. It is unclipped. As it is oversized the upper edges are gently bruised. Given the fragility of proof copies, this is in very nice condition.
