I didn't get the nearly new copy I ordered but since it arrived in about two days I wasn't going to complain. It was a different edition than what I ordered-- a much older and well worn one, but it also had an interesting essay about the book in the back, so again, no complaints. Another lesson in not judging a book by it's cover. The story is terrific too!
