Condition: Ex-library with the usual pocket and stamps - however, overall this is a tight clean and apparently unread copy of an extremely hard to find first book, in a very good dustjacket (some tape remnants on the flaps) Issued simultaneously in both hardcover and paperback, it seems that almost all of the hardcover issue went to libraries.
