A TRUE First American Edition/First Printing/First State with ALL First Edition Points present! Please remember this is the First AMERICAN Edition! This rare treasure has some VERY clearly visible wear, but is still in Highly Collectible condition! The wear, however, is extensive and very clearly visible! The book has no internal writing, no remainder marks, no missing or ripped pages and is NOT Ex-Libris or a BCE.
The binding has some clearly visible wear and separation, but is still holding tight and the pages are surprisingly crisp and clean! Some general/shelf wear along with a very noticeable lean, creases/scuffing/wear to the spine/corners/cloth boards, marks/creases/warping/wear to some of the pages and marks/wear to the edge/fore pages, NOT affecting the text! Please note the wear on the spine/corners/cloth boards, particularly along the edges, and the marks/creases/wear that is present on some of the pages! The large marks are mostly relegated to the rear paste down and final few pages, but the creases/warping is present on a considerable number of pages.The most obvious and egregious wear was closely photographed for your consideration. The original, First State dust jacket is fully intact and NOT price-clipped! Some general/shelf wear along with creases, chipping, rips, scuffing and marks. Please note the wear on the spine, at the corners, on the inside front flap and near/along the edges! There are also numerous, large marks on the inside of the dust jacket!
The dust jacket has been encased in a museum quality, removable dust jacket protector. We tend to grade the condition of our books rather harshly, and took into consideration any and all wear when determining the value of this rare book. Our VERY LOW asking price is a reflection of that consideration and if this copy was in better condition our asking price would be considerably higher. Once again, the wear to both the book and the dust jacket is extensive and VERY clearly visible!Numerous photographs from various angles were taken for your consideration/inspection. Please closely and carefully view ALL the pictures for further clarification!! -HC/DJ-VERY RARE" is in sale since Monday, April 8, 2019.
