First printing. "First edition" appears on the title page with no indication of a later printing. The pages are clean and unmarked. The binding/spine is tight and straight. The corners are sharp/unbumped. Unfortunately age or production paste deterioration have caused the spine and the board edges near it to appear stained or foxed. Similar discoloration appears along the near-spine edges of the pastedowns and front endpapers. The top text block is foxed. The jacket is in "good" condition. The bends are age discolored. There are some small abrasions along the spine, and there are three tears along the bottom edge, the longest two of which are about an inch long. There is light residue from a price sticker that was removed from the front flap where the original price of $3.50 appears.
