First edition second printing (the first printing was September 1984, second printing May 1985). Hardback book is tight clean and square. Blue cloth boards sharp and clean, title gilt perfect. Text block clean with light toning to edges. Feels unread. Lovely near fine copy. Jacket also near fine, minor handling marks to the gloss, and a very light crease that runs next to front joint. Overall a near fine copy, of this highly collectible book. 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. An exceptional opportunity to acquire a super example of this collectible title.
