A good copy. The wrapper is a bit chipped and rubbed to the edges with some foxing around the joints, and faded to the spine. It has been price-clipped but is now within a protective sleeve. The book has light and occasional foxing but is in good, strong readable condition.
Please note: Due to the recent price rise from USPS, we will be putting our postage rates to USA up for which we apologise but have no choice.
