Overall all a nice copy of a very rare 1st edition.

Condition Grading: There are two grades for each book. The first letter/s refer to the cover/binding and the second refers tothe internals. For example EX/G statesthat the boards and spine are excellent and the pages are good.

Grading isas follows: M isMINT: Perfect - as new. It is very unlikely that I would ever class a book in this categoryregardless of how good the condition is. EXis Excellent: - A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pagesare intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remainsundamaged. Very little bumping/rubbingto edges of boards. Very little evidenceof discoloration/foxing to pages.

Gis Good: - A copy that has been read but remains in clean condition. All pagesare intact and the cover is intact (including dust cover, if applicable). Thespine may show signs of wear. Pages can include limited notes and highlighting,and the copy can include "From the library of" labels. Some evidence of bumping/rubbing to edges ofboards and possibility of small marks to boards. Some light discoloration/foxing to edges ofpages/endpapers.

Ais Acceptable: - A readable copy. All pages and the cover are intact but theremaybe damage. Pages can include considerable notes--in pen or highlighter--butnotes cannot obscure the text. Considerable evidence of discoloration/foxing to pages/endpapers. Postage Information We willusually dispatch your order within 2 days of receiving cleared payment.
