Brilliant Scarlet cloth boards with VERY Bright gilt titling. In the original publishers' pictorial dustjacket, with slight rubbing to the tips of the d/j corners and some chipping/creasing to the head/tail of the d/j spine, but overall a VG d/j, this has been internally repaired with clear archive book tape, but is now in a new protective clear - removable - bookfilm plastic cover and looks Near Fine. The dustjacket is not price clipped, although all four corners are clipped as Cape does on its books so I am assuming that this is as issued. Top page edges gilt. Some foxing (browny) spots to the remaining page fore-edges. Turquoise endpapers, xx + 603 pp. Black and White Frontispiece by Barnett Freedman, who has also illustrated the most attractive colour dustjacket on the front the spine and the back cover. With 16 illustrations reproduced in collotype, and with a frontispiece and a jacket design by the talented Barnett Freedman. NO Inscriptions. All Hinges tight and secure, and pages so clean and clear it looks as if it has never been read, apart from the spotting to the page edges, this is a MOST ATTRACTIVE, Very Clean, Bright, and Tight copy........A Really Lovely copy! FIRST EDITION, FIRST Printing. See Images; Large 8vo 9" - 10" tall
