Light edge-wear with some small nicks and a little rubbing at the corners and spine ends. The red lettering to the spine is unfaded. The wrapper is protected in a removable Brodart archival cover. The book has been Signed (without dedication) by the author to the title page. A copy of the ticket for the signing event accompanies the title as provenance.
