A US first edition, first impression - the trade edition. A review copy, with a review slip loosely laid in.
Wrapper : The wrapper on this copy is bright, clean and complete. It is unclipped. It shows trivial rubbing to the front panel corners and a slight hint of fading to the red lettering on the spine ( negligible ). Looks very sharp.
Book : The book is square and very tight. There are no previous ownership inscriptions. The boards are clean and unfaded. The lower leading edge corner on the back board is trivially bruised. The spine ends are gently bruised. The pages and closed page edges are clean and bright. The binding is tight - no cracked hinges. No remainder marks. A very nice copy in a protected wrapper.
