All issues show mild chipping along extended edges (typical of issue), some dulling to text block edges, mild chipping to spine extremities. All three issues have been protected in acetate wraps for some time, leaving them reasonably well preserved. Clean interiors. An unusual opportunity to acquire the first three issues of one of the most influential literary journals of the 20th century.
