Original salmon fur-grained covers with lettering to the upper cover in black. Faint marginal soiling to spine with minor wrinkling here and there; top edge of upper cover and opening few pages turned up slightly; area of minor staining to lower cover with a little colour transfer to fore-edge of rear endpaper, contents nice and clean otherwise and firmly bound. A very good example of a rare book.
