We previously bought and/or sold this book in the following, or similar, condition:
An uncorrected UK proof (Advanced Reader's Copy). This is a bright copy, without previous ownership inscriptions. The covers are bright and unfaded with just the tiniest of tiny creases at the corners - insignificant. There are no creases to the spine, which is solid and intact. The pages and closed page edges are clean. The binding is solid - no cracked hinges or loose pages. Given the fragility of proof copies, this is in very nice condition.
