Publisher's black cloth, spine lettered in gilt; all text block edges trimmed; original dust jacket. Spine slightly skewed; spine ends just a touch rolled and showing a trace of wear; mild bubbling to cloth along joints (possibly occurred during binding process). Endpapers and text block very faintly yellowed with age; bookseller's ticket at rear pastedown. Some mild edge wear to jacket resulting in a couple of tiny chips and a handful of nicks at spine and flap fold ends; a bit of minor rubbing and soiling; some faint staining to spine and front panel. A near fine copy of a scarce book, this being the only time it was issued in English.
