Condition: Very good minus in turquoise cloth with gilt lettering on the spine in a very good minus dust jacket (some dampstaining affecting the margins of the endpapers and a few pages, some bleeding from the cloth to the interior of the dj) Despite the flaws this is a decent copy of an uncommon book.
