Very Good dust jacket with Very Good/Near Fine book. Original dust jacket, slightly wrinkled across the top and bottom edges, some minor scuffs. However, no nicks, chips, or tears, and not sun-faded at all. Red cloth covered boards, with gilt titling to the spine. Very small stain (less than 3mm) to the front board, lightly bumped top and bottom spine ends, and an insignificant dent on the rear. The page edges are clean, appear to have never been handled. Plain white end papers, with authors personal inscription on the front free end paper (to P. Goodwin). The text is entirely free of any marks, annotations, or marginalia. This is an ideal copy for collectors. A signed, first edition in this condition is very rare.
