Quantity: 1 available


First edition first printing. Hardback book is tight clean and square. Yellow boards sharp and very clean, with black titles. Text block clean, with the barest hint of toning to edges. The pages are crisp and unblemished. Touch of offset toning to end papers. Feels lightly read. Sharp spine ends, near fine condition. Jacket some minor crimping to edge, with small creasing to foot of spine. Rear white panel has a touch of light marking, but still very clean. Tiny 1mm rubs to the corners, and a small 2mm rub to rear joint. 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. An exceptionally clean and sharp copy of this collectible first edition first printing title. Presented in the variant and uncommon yellow boards, this title is commonly found in the blue boards, but we have found a couple of other previously sold examples both in the UK and USA. The yellow boards are slightly smaller than the blue boards and the jacket is therefore cropped by the publisher to suit. A lovely volume both in the hand and on the shelf.
