With Decorations by Kent Crane (illustrator). 1st Edition. This is a very good hardback copy in the original white cloth covers complete with the dustwrapper, which has some pieces missing including most of the spine, but it has now been professionally repaired. the spine is darkened and the pages have a stain in margin between the pages For books going outside Europe I strongly recommend airmail as sea mail is a poor service, books to Europe always go by airmail in any case. Inland, I send all parcels that weigh under a kilo by first class. For any enquiries please do get in touch.
