An uncorrected UK proof ( Advanced Reader's Copy ). This is a bright copy, and as such it is tight and without inscriptions. The covers are bright and unfaded with just the tiniest of tiny creases at the corners - insignificant. There are no creases to the spine, which is solid and unfaded. The pages and closed page edges are clean – the top closed page edge is slightly dusty. The binding is solid with no cracked hinges or loose pages. Comes with a proof dustwrapper. The dust jacket is clean and unfaded. It is slightly worn at the head of the spine. It is – unlike the final production wrapper – un-priced on the inside flap. Given the fragility of proof copies, this is in very nice condition.
Condition: Near Fine + Wrapper: Very Good ++ / Near Fine
