A near 'As New', tight, clean copy in a similar 'As New' dust-jacket. In black cloth boards - with bright gilt titling to the spine. No publisher noted on the spine of either the book or dust-jacket. Only graded as 'Near Fine' rather than 'As New' due to some light scattered smudges to the top edge of the mainly clean, white page fore-edges - negligible. The dust-jacket is now in a new protective clear - removable - bookfilm plastic cover and looks FINE. Internally NO Inscriptions or Marks. The Title page displays the original Publishers name - Allen Lane/The Penguin Press - and it's only in the small print on the reverse of the title page that indicates that this is the Book Club Associates version - probably identical, as the original publishers book or remainder sheets were often used for BCA. (lxvi) + 782 pp. Illustrated in b/w with Maps, Tables, line-drawings, etc. Preface by Jane Smiley and a long 51 page introduction by Robert Kellogg. 30 Translators from 7 Countries were involved in this wonderful project. Published in conjunction with the 1,000th anniversary of Leif Eriksson's voyage to America, as recorded in 'The Vinland Sagas' - commemorating the adventures/myths and legends of the people who first settled Iceland, and then explored Greenland and North America. A Wonderful but Heavy book, which may require extra postage from International customers only depending on your location. See Images; Large Thick 8vo 9" - 10" tall
