Very Good in J Near Fine jacket. 1st ed/1st printing, SIGNED by the author on the title page. This book is square, solid, and plausibly unread; the boards are solid and only very lightly blemished from handling. The sides of the pages have some light agespotting and foxing, but not too much, and there is a blue ballpoint pen mark that barely shows up on the exterior of the pages but is on the interior of two pages, as if a pen got pushed inside; it did not create an instance of gapping. At the bottom, there is an odd flaw: from page 77-88 a small area in the middle at the bottom got damp and there is a slight ripple effect but just in a smal localized area. Never seen anything quite like it. The dust jacket is overall awfully sharp with a just a few rubs of shelf wear and a bit of toning to the interior edges; at the top of the spine there is a spot of chipping and there, and long the back upper edge there is some light wrinkling. The front, happily, looks terrific. The jacket is now protected by a protective Brodart cover--would that it always had been, right? No price clippings, no remainder marks. Now, all this said--I've had about a dozen copies of this book in the last nearly twenty years on selling, and this is about the best copy--reading all that makes it sound like a lot, but when you're looking at the book, overall it's an attractive copy of a very hard to find book--at least in this shape. You'll turn cartwheels of glee when you receive this book! ! ! Signed: I Signed by Author(s)
