Light gray cloth, lettered in dark red. First edition, no addt'l printings indicated (preceding the British). Cover cloth mildly soiled, tanned along spine panel and cover edges, rubbed with slight exposure at corners, both spine extremities frayed, approx. 1/4" loss at head of spine. Top text block edge somewhat dulled/spotted. Firm binding, with some toning evident on endpapers and front flyleaf showing an area of glue spotting/residue, perhaps from a book plate. Text block typically a bit toned by age but otherwise intact. Color illus. dust jacket shows 1 1/2" and 3/4" closed tears along bottom front edge with mild crease extending diagonally between them, 2 1/2" separation along upper rear flap fold, some toning to rear panel, rubbed edges with minor chipping at spine extremities, price clipped front flap, still displays reasonably well in archival mylar. DJ is second state, rear panel headed "Critical Acclaim" rather than "Advance Critical Acclaim" and showing excerpts from nine reviews. No longer the most elegant copy, certainly, but essentially intact, a high spot of 20th century literature priced affordably. Photographs available upon request.
