In the publisher's original cloth with the original unclipped dust wrappers. Externally generally with light bumping to the head and tail of the spines. Discolouration and marks to the spine of 'Arnold Waterlow', caused by the tide mark to the dust wrapper, and a small amount of discolouration to the extremities of 'Uncanny Stories'. 'Far End' is a little faded to the spine and extremities. Spotting to the end papers of 'Uncanny' and 'Arnold'. Offsetting to the end papers of 'Far End'. Rear hinge staring but firm to 'Arnold'. The wraps are sound with rubbing, heavier to 'Far End', where the rubbing has resulted in surface loss. Edge wear to the dust wrappers, with chipping, creasing and closed tears, chips a little heavier to the head and tail of the spines. Tidemark to the reverse of the dust wrappers for 'Arnold' and 'Uncanny Stories', resulting in some offsetting to 'Arnold'. Internally, firmly bound.
