SIGNED. 386pp. Octavo [21 cm] Red and gray cloth covered boards. Very good. The edges of the spine and covers are gently faded, rubbed and bumped. Minor spine slant. The top edge of the text block is slightly soiled, and there is a small scuff mark on the bottom edge of the text block. The pages are mildly browned. The dust jacket is in fair condition only. Rubbed and creased. There are numerous losses from the edges. The largest loss is along the fold of the rear inside flap and measures 2 and 1/4 inches long by 1/2 inch wide. The rear inside flap is almost completely detached. There is a 1 inch long closed tear in the top edge of the front panel. Price-clipped.
