About this Item

First UK edition, first impression of this book of essays (considered by the publisher to be "the definitive collection of the author's work") by the author, a winner of the Nobel Prize in 1960. Viewed from the outside, both book and jacket present as in fine, unblemished condition -crisp and unread, unfaded, no wear and tear, virtually 'as new'. Opening the book, there is a little bit of faint foxing on the end pages. Removing the jacket, however, reveals that, on the verso of the jacket only, there is a light blue damp stain at the bottom of the rear cover about 3 & 1/2" long, most of which is at the lower edge and very shallow (1/2 cm.). At the far right, it rises up to a height of about 4 & 1/2 cm. by 1 & 1/2 cm. wide. There is some corresponding marking to the rear cover (dark blue cloth) but much fainter, indeed it disappears from view when the viewing angle changes. None of this is visible from the exterior though. It is beautiful otherwise. The book (scarce in jacket) is priced taking this flaw into consideration - if it were not present, the price would be four or five times the current asking price. Photos on request!.
