739pp. Quarto [28.5 cm] Gray cloth covered boards with a blue ink stamped title on the spine and a blue ink stamped vignette on the front cover. Very good. The spine ends and corners of the covers are gently bumped. The covers are very slightly concave and subtly stained. There is a small ink stamp on the front free endsheet. The text block is just beginning to crack at the rear. The dust jacket is in very good condition, with light staining, more so on the front panel. The largest stain on the front panel measures 4 inches wide by 2 inches tall. The jacket is also slightly age-toned, rubbed and soiled. There are several small losses from the edges. The largest loss is from the paper at the head of the spine, and measures 2 inches wide by 1 inch deep. There are numerous small closed tears in the edges and folds as well.
