Publisher's original purple cloth with gilt lettering to spine and upper board. Free from any inscriptions with just a touch of trivial rubbing to bottom edge of boards and toning to edges of text block, fine otherwise in a near fine, price-clipped dust jacket with very minor traces of rubbing to spine tips and corners and a very small closed tear to bottom edge of upper panel. An excellent copy of a very uncommon book.
