A UK first edition, first impression. A review copy, with a review label loosely laid in.
WRAPPER: The wrapper on this copy (artwork by Stein) is bright, clean and complete. It is unclipped. It shows gentle rubbing and scuffing to the spine ends. The spine is - unusually - unfaded. Looks sharp in protective plastic.
BOOK: The book is square and very tight. The boards are clean and bright. The corners are sharp. The spine ends are gently bruised. The pages are clean. No foxing. The closed page edges are clean - they show very light, inconsequential spotting. No dog-eared pages. The binding is solid - no cracked hinges. There are no previous ownership inscriptions. A nice looking copy in a protected wrapper.
Publisher: Macdonald, 1961
