Lawrence Block writing as Paul Kavanagh. A UK first edition, first impression. A publisher's file copy, with a File Copy stamp on the front pastedown. Unique thus.
WRAPPER: The wrapper on this copy is bright, is unfaded and is complete. It is unclipped. It shows a touch of rubbing to the upper edges and a trace of trivial toning to the white back panel. Looks very sharp.
BOOK: The book is square and very tight. There are no previous ownership inscriptions. The boards are clean and unfaded. The pages are clean and bright. No foxing. The closed page edges are unmarked. No dog-eared pages. The binding is tight, the hinges are solid. A pleasing copy in a protected wrapper.
