A very small tear to the lower edge of pages 7 and 9 which is likely to have been a production fault in the cutting of the pages. The WRAPPER is complete and is in exceptional condition. Just a a hint of toning to the spine. The red colouring to the spine remains 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. The book is housed in a custom solander box with marbled inserts, gilt titling and a silk tie. A very sharp copy.
