New York: Paul S. Eriksson, Inc., 1964. One-Quarter Cloth. Very Good / Good. Item #070334
Pages clean except for a prior owner's name on the front free endpaper and an open tear across the top corner of pp.305 and some creasing and short edge tears at pp.307-316 as well as small closed tears and diagonal creases to a few adjacent pages; binding somewhat shaken at rear hinge, otherwise square and secure; hard cover is moderately softened and rubbed at corners and spine ends, otherwise well-kept. Dustjacket shows a pale-brown-edged water stain at the right front, a few brown specks on the rear, toning along the spine and edges, surface chipping and creasing along the spine sides and foreedges, some short tears - open and closed - with attendant creasing around the spine ends and corners, and a few additional, smaller, closed tears at top and bottom, front and back; nonetheless still striking, unclipped, now protected in a clear sleeve. 591pp.
