Very Good in Good jacket. Pages crisp and clean except for a prior owner's note at the front free endpaper, a prior owner's name-stamp on the top edge of the page block, and a little mild foxing at the head-and foreedges; binding square and tight, hard cover only mildly softened at spine ends, otherwise excellent. Jacket bears some open chipping and scuffing at the spine head and free corners, a curved, open tear at the top rear very nearly impacting the printed area, smaller, closed edge tears around the heel edges, and the occasional handling smudge, otherwise sound and now protected in a clear sleeve. 283pp. An exceptionally thinly veiled, but charming and solidly researched, "Socratic" dialogue that does indeed serve as an Oxford guidebook.
Good in Good jacket. Book. 8vo-over 7¾-9¾" tall. 283pp. Small bumps to lower corners of boards and just a touch of wear to cloth. Only a hint of soiling to edges of pages. Text clean and binding sound. Several tiny chips and tears to extremities of only lightly soiled dust-jacket, with a tiny rubbed area to lower part of spine of dust-jacket. Still an attractive copy.
