A UK first edition - no subsequent editions noted. Lacking Prefatory Notes and advertisements and thus not the first issue.
WRAPPER : The wrapper on this copy is bright, clean and complete. It is unclipped. The front panel is bright, clean and unfaded. The spine is sharp, showing insignificant creaminess to those parts that are white and trivial rubbing to the ends. The back panel is slightly soiled, showing gentle bruising to the top and bottom edges. There are two minuscule closed tears at the bottom edge. Looks sharp in protective plastic.
BOOK : The book is square and very tight. The boards are clean, the corners are sharp. The spine ends are gently bruised. The pages are clean. No foxing. The closed page edges are bright. No dog-eared pages. The binding is solid - no cracked hinges. There are no previous ownership inscriptions. A very nice copy in a protected wrapper.
