481pp. Octavo [19.5 cm] Orange cloth covered boards with black ink stamped titles on the spine and front cover, and a black ink stamped vignette on the front cover. Very good. The spine ends are gently bumped, and the covers are very slightly bowed. There are two small, light smudge stains on the front cover, and the rear cover has several minor traces of soiling. There are also a couple of very tiny stains on the bottom edge of the text block. The text block is just beginning to crack at the foot of the title page. The book is still very sturdy. Subtly yellowed pages. In a good dust jacket. Lightly rubbed and soiled. The edges are chipped, and there is a loss from the paper at the head of the dust jacket's spine. The loss measures 1 and 1/2 inches wide by 1/2 of an inch deep. The spine of the dust jacket is discolored, however the title is very bold.
First edition with a dust jacket. Jacket design by Richard Rodgers.
