Dust jacket is somewhat soiled and missing a few chips, flat tears on outer edges, but colors are still bright, binding has minor shelf-wear, tanning on endpapers, otherwise text block is tight, clean, bright and sharp. Very good in a good dust jacket, protected by a mylar cover.. First Edition. Quarter Cloth. Very Good/Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
