Iowa State University Press, 1978. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good / Good +. Item #039151
Signed, dated, and inscribed to a named individual at the title page by the author. The pages of this copy are crisp, bright, and clean, with no owners' marks; the binding is square and tight; the hard cover shows a tap and some wrinkling at the lower front corner and a little modest shelf rubbing at the other corners and spine ends, but is otherwise clean and excellent. The dust jacket has two short, closed edge tears, the one near the spine heel with a little accompanying creasing; there is a smudged area at the lower rear and a little gentle toning at the edges of the jacket, but it is otherwise clean and attractive, now protected in a clear, archivally safe sleeve.
