Hardback with dust jacket. First edition. Original brown boards. The boards are clean, with just slight fading to both ends of the spine. No previous owner's names or inscriptions. Significant foxing to the outer closed textblock page edges, with some foxing to prelims and a few scattered spots to pages throughout. The binding is firm. The dust jacket is faded at the spine, has some tears and chips to edges, with minor loss, and a repaired to the bottom edge of the back cover (old repair to the underside with a paper repair tape, not sellotape). A good copy of this scarce first edition, with the lovely Brian Cook dust jacket. pp. viii, 120, 32. The dust jacket is supplied by us in a loose protective clear archival film sleeve. This does not adhere to the book or jacket in any way and it protects the jacket against wear. (Photographed without the film sleeve, to minimise reflection).
