A UK first edition, first impression.
Wrapper : The wrapper on this copy is bright, unfaded and complete. It is unclipped - there is no price on the front inside flap, just an £11.95 price sticker. The cream lettering on the spine has faded to a uniform white. Looks sharp.
Book : The book is square and tight. There are no previous ownership inscriptions. The boards are clean and are unfaded. The spine ends are trivially bruised. The pages are clean. The closed page edges are unmarked. The text block is a little dulled. No foxing. No dog-eared pages. The binding is tight - no cracked hinges. A nice copy in a protected wrapper.
Condition: Very Good ++. Wrapper: Near Fine
