A UK first edition, first impression.
WRAPPER: The wrapper on this copy is very bright, very clean, is unfaded and complete. It is unclipped, showing the price 10s 6d on the inside flap. It shows an imperceptible trace of toning to the upper edge of the back panel - barely worth the mention. Looks very sharp in protective plastic.
BOOK: The book is square and very tight. The boards are clean and unfaded. The corners are sharp. The pages are clean. No foxing. The closed page edges are bright. There are no loose or dog-eared pages. The binding is solid and without cracked hinges. There are no previous ownership inscriptions. An attractive copy in a protected wrapper.
