8vo., 241pp. Beautiful First edition, Square, tight, and clean throughout with little or no wear save perhaps a touch of softness to the crown but quite minor. Equally attractive clipped dust-jacket is fresh and bright with no chipping, creases, tears or toning. Signed and inscribed by the author on the front end-paper to clearly someone more important than just a casual reader. "For Ruth in Vienna in 1981 - If you like this book half as much as I like you, then it is a very great success. My love, Jonathan". A gorgeous collectable copy at a great price.
