Book Description Printed by G. Dams & Lock Ltd., Birmingham, 1975. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. 1st Edition. A very good copy of the stated first (1975) hard cover edition in a merely good (not clipped) dust-jacket. Bleed-through to the title page of the copyright label affixed to the base of the copyright page, and mild foxing to the top page edge of the volume, else the text is wholly unmarked, pristine, and the red cloth binding bright and fresh in appearance, with the gilt lettering on the spine brilliantly evident. Jacket is merely good: with abundant tearing and fraying at the extremities. A handsome copy of this rare title.
