Well-preserved for such delicately, and cheaply, made books that are notorious for the poor condition they are typically found in. Very attractive original unclipped, though unpriced, dustjacket, (2/- on spine panel), has a 1/2" chip at the crown and a couple of smaller chips to the heel and extremities. two pieces of white tape on the verso though transparent from the front. Mild soiling to rear panel. Not perfect but still fresh and bright and impossible to find in any condition.
