Very Good. The illustrated dustjacket on this vintage collectible first edition, first printing hardcover rates FINE-or near mint. The jacket adds much to the historical feel and value of this title. There is some visible rubbing on the edges of the dustjacket, early wear to a decorative jacket which has long been protected in archival quality mylar. Book itself is like new inside. This lovely book is NOT priceclipped, NEVER library, NOT of course a worthless book of the month edition. FYI-the 1st-1st is the only true first edition and the only edition sought by value collectors of this title. However you will see listed many copies described as first editions that are not and others in violation of listing policies. MendoPower Employment Services will immediately and carefully pack this book in high-quality bubble lined, envelopes. Then we send you a confirmation e-mail. We appreciate your business and welcome any questions.
