Short stories. A bright UK first edition, first impression.
Wrapper: The wrapper on this copy is bright, unfaded and complete. It is unclipped. It shows a hint of rubbing and scuffing at the head of the spine and a touch of trivial soiling to the leading edge of the back panel. Looks sharp.
Book: The book is square and very tight. There are no previous ownership inscriptions. The boards are clean and unfaded, the corners sharp. It shows a hint of trivial bruising to the spine ends and lower corners. The pages are clean. The closed page edges are unmarked. No foxing. No dog-eared pages. The binding is tight - no cracked hinges. An attractive copy in a protected wrapper.
