[bottom corners moderately bumped, otherwise a solid clean copy with just light shelfwear; jacket is edgeworn, with a few small tears, creasing and scrunching at top of spine, slight paper loss at top corners].

[beware: the book's covers are extensively dampstained, although there appears to have been no associated damage done to the inside; as usual, however, with these cheap wartime editions the paper is quite browned; the jacket is heavily edgeworn, with numerous nicks and tiny tears but very little actual paper loss; in summary, keep the jacket on and this will serve as a reasonably presentable copy of a scarce edition].
