How it works


First edition, first impression of the author's classic first work.

The book is clean and square, the binding is tight and the corners are sharp. Internally the pages are white with only a neat contemporary former owner's name at the top of the front end paper. The dust jacket is not price clipped, and, given its susceptibility to wear, this copy is in very good condition.
