Green cloth boards with gilt lettering to spine. Previous owner’s name and address in faded blue ink to front paste-down. Very light foxing to edges of text bock and to a small number of leaves. In brightly coloured Hans Tindall designed dust jacket with Book Society Choice and original price of 16s.net to flap. Some scuffing to spine ends and corners.
