First edition first printing. Hardback book is tight clean and square. Boards sharp and clean, with crease to the paper covering of the upper board that runs over the spine to the lower board, this is not damage but is obviously a binding error. Title gilt perfect. Text block clean, and white with a couple of very small light spots to fore edge. Feels very lightly read. Lightly bumped spine ends, near fine condition. Lovely jacket with the brilliant Bruce Pennington wrap around artwork has been price clipped, and a touch of crimping at the head and foot of the spine. Overall near fine. 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 worthy addition to your collection. Note we do not use stock images, the book pictured is the book described. A super example of this collectible first edition first printing title, the third book in the New Sun series. Perhaps the scarcest title in this series especially in this superb condition, definitely one for the collectors.
