NotesFirst edition, first printing, first issue. The first issue can be distinguished by the six lines of printing information on the final page: this was cut to five in all subsequent issues. The US edition precedes the UK edition by three years.
Octavo. Original red cloth, spine lettered in gilt, title device to front board and publisher's to rear in blind, top edge purple, dark yellow endpapers. With the dust jacket.
Spine ends bumped, the binding otherwise vibrant and firm, small damp stain to top edge, internally crisp. A very good copy in the very good jacket, a little chipping to corners, rubbed, slight spotting to verso, the spine notably unfaded, not price clipped.
