In the original publisher's near fine pictorial dust-jacket - one tiny mark - negligible. The d/j is now in a new protective clear - removable - bookfilm plastic cover and looks As New. The only reason I've given the Book 'Near Fine' rather than 'As New' is because the page fore-edges are lightly 'toned' (but uniformly) as usual with the type of paper used.

His dilapidated cottage in Penlan, Mid Wales, rented for £100 per year, is so exposed to the elements that it appears to rain uphill, and so remote that you can walk for twenty miles west without seeing a single other dwelling. As the years pass he feels himself dissolving into, and becoming, just another part of the Welsh landscape..." . See Images; 8vo 8" - 9" tall
