A UK first edition, first impression.
WRAPPER : The wrapper on this copy ( artwork by Stein ) is bright, clean and complete. It is unclipped. The front panel is bright and unfaded. The spine is slightly sunned. It is gently rubbed at the ends. The white back panel is sound - it shows scattered foxing to the leading edge. Looks sharp in protective plastic.
BOOK : The book is square and tight. The boards are clean. The corners are sharp. The pages are clean - there are one or two spots on the three pages. No foxing. The closed page edges are dulled and show occasional flecking. No dog-eared pages. The binding is solid - no cracked hinges. There are no previous ownership inscriptions. A decent copy in a protected wrapper.
