Hardback first edition and first impression. Very good condition. Upper board detached, book rebacked at some point with plain spine and original boards laid down, grubbiness to boards and rubbing. Some tears that have been repaired. Internally quite clean, with a few spots. http://ift.tt/Wa79iZ http://ift.tt/Wa7aDv
