Publisher's original blue cloth and lettering to spine in gilt with white endpapers and paste-downs.A very good or better book with the usual tanning and spotting to edges, light spotting to endpapers and paste-downs and a small previous owner sticker to top corner of front paste-down. The original and unclipped dust jacket is in near fine condition with a little light spotting to verso, but without the usual fading to the spine panel and free from nicks and tears.
