Book Description The Caxton Printers, Caldwell, Idaho, 1939. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. Hardcover with dust jacket, with a protective mylar cover. Please note the condition: The book itself is in VG to VG+ condition with wear at the extremities, but the coloring on the book cover is nice and bright. Binding is nice and solid, hinges are fully intact. Pages are clean with NO markings. The dust jacket has light to modest edge wear, and the price on the front flap has been clipped. The jacket is otherwise complete and aesthetically appealing, albeit with light fading on the spine. The mylar cover is old, so a triangle-shaped portion is missing on the back cover, but the dust jacket beneath this exposed area is just fine. The mylar protective cover has done its job to preserve the dust jacket fairly well, keeping wear to a minimum. The buyer will probably want to replace the mylar cover. Otherwise, a decently nice, clean, and solid copy. Seller Inventory # 004514
