Product description

Jacket has some wear and tear and a few nicks but no large pieces missing.

The spine area of the book and jacket is sunned.

The original price corner was removed by the publisher as the price increased. The new price was printed above and is still present. The price on the rear of the jacket has also been over-stamped. The corners of the rear flap have been clipped.

Green cloth covered boards with the title blind stamped on the front. The title, author and publisher's logo are on the spine in gilt text.

The book is a little bowed.

A small amount of wear along the edges, mainly around the spine.

The corners are slightly bumped.

The hinges and binding are in very good order.

Some yellowing to the first and last free endpapers.

A previous owner has inscribed the half-title page and covered that with a sticker with their name typed on it.

There is a date stamp on the title page.

Very little foxing.
