New York: Time-Life Books, 1973. First edition. Hardcover. 184pp. Quarto [26 cm] 1/4 black cloth with glossy illustrated paper over boards. With the hourglass on the last page. Very good. The front board is just a tiny bit concave, and the corners of the covers are ever so slightly rubbed. The spine ends are faintly bumped. The price-clipped dust jacket is in good condition. Mildly age-toned, rubbed and soiled. There is a large open tear in the top edge of the rear panel that measures 1 inch wide by 1 and 1/4 inches deep. The creased edges have numerous short and long closed tears as well. The longest closed tear measures 3 inches long. There are 4 pieces of tape backing the tears along the top edge. Item #31121
