Add To Cart

Condition: Very good. Some spotting to endpapers, binding tight and pages clean and unmarked. Original maroon dustwrapper has chipping around the edges but remains remarkably complete. A very small loss to the crown and back of the wrapper. Overall a very good copy of this very scarce first edition of the iconic book. Above average.
