Very good. No dust jacket as issued. This is the softcover stated Penguin Edition from 1962. Other than an 1/8-inch paper tear at the bottom of the spine, a name on the flyleaf, and a few discreet underlines, both the cover and the book are in excellent condition. There are no rips, tears, etc. --and the pages and binding are tight (see photo). **Note: All books listed as FIRST EDITIONS are stated by the publisher in words or number lines--or--only stated editions that include only the publisher and publication date. Check my feedback to see that I sell exactly as I describe.
