A UK first edition, first impression.
Wrapper : The evocative period wrapper on this copy is bright and complete. It is unclipped. The spine is unfaded- it is lightly worn at the ends. The back panel shows light wear along the bottom edge.
Book : The book is square and very tight. The boards are clean and unfaded. The corners are sharp. The spine ends are lightly bruised. The pages are clean. The closed page edges are slightly dusty and dulled. There are no loose or dog-eared pages. The binding is solid and without cracked hinges. There are no previous ownership inscriptions. A decent copy in a protected wrapper.
