First Edition (1977) unstated in accordance with Vanguard's customary practice at the time of publication. Very Good+ in Very Good+ DJ: Both book and DJ show indications of very careful use. The Book shows just a hint of sunning to the top and bottom edges of the panels and backstrip; a former bookseller's price has been erased at the upper corner of the blue-toned paper of the front free endpaper, causing a very faint blanching at that spot; sparse, very faint smudges to the outside edges; else flawless; the binding is square and secure; the text is clean. Free of any ownership names, dates, addresses, notations, inscriptions, stamps, plates, or labels. A handsome, nearly-new copy, structurally sound and tighly bound, showing several minor flaws. Very close to 'As New'. The DJ shows only a little faint toning to the panels; a half-inch closed tear at the top of the rear panel; mild rubbing; the price is unclipped; mylar-protected. 8vo. (8.65 x 5.75 x 1.7 inches). xii, 370 pages. Language: English. Weight: 1 pound, 11 ounces. Hardcover.
