A US first edition, first impression.
Wrapper : The fragile wrapper on this copy is bright, complete and in good shape. It is unclipped - showing the price $2.00 on the inside flap. The evocative front panel is bright and unfaded, showing wear to the extremities and slight scuffing to the main body of the panel. The red lettering on the spine has faded. Te spine ends are scuffed. The back panel is fresh, showing trivial wear at the edges. Book
: The book is square and very tight. There are no previous ownership inscriptions. The boards are very clean. The spine ends are gently bruised. The pages are very clean. No foxing. The closed page edges are gently dulled with age. No spotting. The binding is tight, the hinges are solid. A very solid copy in a protected wrapper.
