First edition, first printing. Publisher's original navy blue cloth with titles blocked in grey and red to the upper board and spine, in dustwrapper. A very good copy, the binding square and firm with a little rubbing and bumping to the extremities. The contents, with a few foxing spots to the edge of the front and rear endpaper are otherwise clean throughout and without inscriptions or stamps. Complete with the rubbed and nicked first printing dustwrapper that has several short closed tears with associated creasing, a chip to the upper edge of the rear panel where is meets the spine, and another, smaller, to the top edge of the front panel. The colour remains uniformly bright and without the fading of the spine so often encountered. Not price-clipped ($2.50 to the upper front flap).
