A good first edition, in the original binding. There is wear to the cloth binding on all corners, and it has been worn away to the board near the top of join between front cover and spine. There is a bump to the top of the front cover, and a cut imprint to the spine. Some bruising and wear to the bottom of the spine. In a good clipped dust jacket, with some removal to all corners. Some chipping to front of jacket, and a large chip running the width of the spine. A cut/tear to the spine, matching up with the cut on the book itself. Some wrinkling to the top of the jacket.
