Condition

In the original publisher's cloth binding, in the original unclipped dustwrapper. Externally, smart. A little fading to the spine and head of the boards. Minor bumping to the head and tail of the spine and to the extremities. Dustwrapper is discoloured to the spine with some marks to the wraps. Loss to the head of the wraps and spine. Closed tear to the spine and a small chip to the front flyleaf. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright and generally clean with the odd spot, mostly to the first and last few pages.

Very Good
