Book Club Associates BCA edition first printing from 1996. Book is tight clean and square. Boards sharp and clean, gilt perfect. Feels lightly read. Bumping to head and foot of spine, Very light toning to text block edges, else the text block is very square and clean, near fine condition. Jacket some minor handling and shelf wear, notably minor rubbing to fore edge corners and a larger rub to top of rear joint. 4mm closed tear to front bottom edge, and couple of smaller closed tears to spine ends. Still a very nice copy, and looks lovely on shelf in archival cover. This BCA edition first printing is becoming increasingly scarce, and would be a very nice filler for a collection, until the right price Voyager 1st/1st comes along. Any questions please contact dealer, for further information. This copy is not ex-lib, not priced clipped and has no inscriptions. For grading accuracy books are photographed without a protective book cover. This book is fitted with a non adhesive archival quality book protector to make a quality addition to your collection. Note we do not use stock images, the book pictured is the book described. A really nice example of this increasingly scarce BCA edition title.
