The contents, with some light toning to all edges of the text block, are otherwise clean throughout and free from inscriptions or stamps. Complete with the rubbed and creased dustwrapper, that is lightly faded around the panel edges and has a few residue marks to the front panel, but is otherwise free from loss or tears. Not price-clipped (£2.50 net to the front flap). Uncommon
