A bright UK first edition, first impression.
Wrapper : The evocative wrapper on this copy ( artwork by T Richie ) is bright, unfaded and complete. It is unclipped. It shows a hint of gentle dulling to the spine and a trace of slight wear at the bottom 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. The pages are clean. The closed page edges are sound. No foxing. No dog-eared pages. The binding is tight - no cracked hinges. A very nice copy in a protected wrapper.
